A landlord in Ohio is pleading not guilty to charges in the deaths of four tenants overcome by carbon monoxide fumes from a portable generator.
Steven Snow made his first court appearance in Toledo on Monday. He's charged with four counts of reckless homicide and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
Investigators say Snow gave the generator to the family living in his two-story rental house because it didn't have heat or electricity.
Snow said just over a week ago that he was trying to help the family out by giving them a better place to live.
The Blade of Toledo reports that Snow will be released on a supervised bond.
The four people who died last month included a mother, an 18-year-old and two children.
