3 indicted in Aspen carbon monoxide deaths
ASPEN — Two building inspectors and the owner of a plumbing and heating company face criminal charges in the carbon monoxide deaths of a Denver couple and their two children in 2008.
Pitkin County Assistant District Attorney Arnold Mordkin told The Aspen Times that a grand jury handed up indictments last week in the deaths of Parker and Caroline Lofgren, and their two children. The family had won a raffle at their church for a getaway at an Aspen-area home over Thanksgiving weekend.
Investigators say a disconnected exhaust pipe leaked the odorless gas into the house.
Two men face felony charges of criminally negligent homicide and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment. A third faces misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment.
