Builder, landlord sued in boy's death


Builder and landlord sued in boys' deaths

The parents of two boys who died of carbon monoxide poisoning in 2007 after a car was left running in the garage have sued the home builder and their former landlord for wrongful death. Kirby and Barbara Baudin filed the suit late last month against Lexington Homes, which built the Gulf Harbors duplex, and landlord Philip L. Perry III. Mrs. Baudin found her sons, Jules and Parker, 14 and 12, dead in their beds July 9, 2007. The family's purple minivan was in the closed garage, out of gas, with the ignition switched on. The suit alleges the design of the house allowed air from the garage to come inside, and the garage was not properly ventilated. Lexington Homes and Perry could not be reached Wednesday evening for comment.


Ax-wielding booze thieves still loose

Authorities are still looking for two men who stole $545.86 in Hennessy and Crown Royal early Christmas morning. According to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, one of the men used an ax about 3:15 a.m. to break the window of ABC Liquor, 6115 U.S. 19. The men then stole 17 bottles of liquor from behind the store's counter. The men, who wore yellow rubber gloves, didn't take money from the store's register, the report said. The men fled north on U.S. 19 and then headed east on Main Street in a maroon Ford Taurus, the report said. Anyone with information about the robbery was asked to call the Sheriff's Office's tip line at 1-800-706-2488.


A story on Wednesday's Your Sports page reported incorrectly that Spring Hill Golf Club was the first golf course built in Hernando County. At least two other courses on the east side of the county predated it.
