Some charges challenged in carbon monoxide deaths

ASPEN — Attorneys for a businessman and two building inspectors blamed in the carbon monoxide deaths of a Denver family say 12 charges against their clients should be dismissed because the statute of limitations has run out.

The charges are all misdemeanors.

The Aspen Daily News reports the men were in court Monday for a motions hearing. They’re accused in the deaths of Parker and Caroline Lofgren and their two children, who were staying in an Aspen-area home in 2008.

Investigators say a disconnected pipe leaked carbon monoxide into the house.

Plumbing and heating company owner Marlin Brown and former Aspen building inspector Erik Peltonen face felony charges of criminally negligent homicide and four misdemeanors. Brian Pawl, a Pitkin County building plan and field inspector, faces only misdemeanor charges.
