DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN)- Judge Mike Tucker, Administrative Judge of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas General Division said, “The DVD speaks for itself.”

Judge Tucker is referring to the DVD of the hearing during which Klonda Richey who was killed by dogs Friday expressed fear about the dogs and their owner.

On January 7th, 2013, Richey spent 30 minutes testifying about what she considered ongoing harassment.

The neighbor at the center of her concerns testified too. He told the court that nobody’s life is in danger.

Magistrate Kristi Wuebben agreed and Richey’s request for a protection order was denied.

Judge Tucker who spoke on behalf of Wuebben expressed his condolences to the Richey family, but said the court is not going to analyze why the decision to deny was made a year ago.
