FYI update-
ASPEN — Because of an issue with the statute of limitations, prosecutors are dropping misdemeanor charges against two government building inspectors and a contractor in the Thanksgiving 2008 carbon-monoxide poisoning deaths of a Denver family.
Chief District Attorney Arnold Mordkin has filed three motions indicating he will not pursue misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment against city of Aspen building inspector Brian Pawl, retired Pitkin County building inspector Erik Peltonen and Marlin Brown, owner of Glenwood Springs-based Roaring Fork Plumbing & Heating.
But the most severe charges — criminally negligent homicide — are still pending against Brown, 57, of Glenwood Springs, and Peltonen, 68, of Basalt. Pawl, a 46-year-old Basalt resident, was not indicted on felony charges.
Mordkin said this week that the decision was made after prosecutors realized the statute of limitations on the misdemeanors had expired by the time a Pitkin County grand jury indicted the three on July 22, 2010.
