Two tenants held in beating of landlord

NEW PORT RICHEY

Two tenants held in beating of landlord

A landlord was beaten up Thursday afternoon after asking her tenants for their past-due rent and their share of the electric bill, authorities said. For the past six months, Elizabeth Bianco, 42, has shared her house at 9135 Mango St. in Griffin Park with Kristopher B. Foley, 21, and Megan M. Lee, 22, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office report said. About 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Bianco asked Lee about some overdue money for the electric bill, and a fight ensued, the report said. Lee, who was outside the house drinking bottles of Busch beer, threw a bottle at Bianco and punched her in the chest, the report said. The beer bottle missed, shattering on the sidewalk. The report said Foley held Bianco's arms, so Lee could hit her, but Foley told deputies he was trying to break up the fight. Lee told deputies Bianco started the fight, and said she did not throw a bottle because she "would never waste a beer for that." Foley and Lee were both arrested on charges of domestic battery. They were held without bail at the Land O'lakes Jail.

Clarification

The Richey Concert Band will perform at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Center for the Arts at River Ridge, 11646 Town Center Road, New Port Richey. Admission is $2 at the door. Parking is free. The day of the concert was not listed in Friday's Pasco Times.

Correction

Michael Mulrooney, a 42-year-old man accused of sexually abusing a girl, lives at 17702 Medley Ave. in Shady Hills. Due to incorrect information provided by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, an item Friday gave the wrong address.
