PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - The owners of a dog on death row are asking a judge to order DNA tests to try to clear their pet in the death of another dog.

The Times Herald in Port Huron (https://bwne.ws/2dfT5Qk ) says a judge has ordered that Jeb, a Belgian Malinois, must be euthanized. But the newspaper says a hearing has been scheduled for Monday on a request for a DNA swab from the dog that died.

Vlad, a Pomeranian, was found dead on Aug. 24. Jeb lived next door to Vlad in St. Clair.

Ed Marshall, an attorney for Jeb’s owners, says a DNA swab could determine whether Jeb truly was involved. Authorities say Vlad’s injuries suggest he was picked up and shaken by a larger animal.
