Family Sues Apartment Owner after Teenager Dies in Fire

Justice scale on blue backgroundThe family of 19-year-old Kristen Milano, who died due to smoke inhalation after another teenager threw a firecracker through her bedroom window, has filed a wrongful death suit.

Eric Morelli, who threw the firecracker, was awarded 7-year prison sentence last month for causing the death of Milano. He said he was hoping to awaken Milano’s brother.

The lawsuit names the apartment owner, the town of Southington and local fire departments as the defendants and claims that the owner showed negligence by not installing window screen despite their continual requests.

The lawsuit was filed at New Britain Superior Court, Connecticut.
