The trial for the landlord whose three tenants died from suspected carbon monoxide poisoning in West Babylon was postponed. Wilson Milord was in a Lindenhurst court Monday to face numerous housing violation charges, including having too many apartments in one house. The trial, however, was postponed because Milord?s lawyer had a different case in Brooklyn. While in court, Milord said the tragedy was not a crime. He also said a tenant from a second apartment in his house should have done more to help the victims. ?He could have saved those people's life, he saved his dog he save[d] himself, he save[d] his girlfriend,? said Milord. One former tenant, who now lives in Maryland, said she is ready to testify when the trial does get underway. ?I'm here to testify for the town,? said Michele Reyes. ?I hope that justice can be done, because it's a tragedy, it's a tragedy, and I knew it was a disaster waiting to happen.? Milford and his lawyer are expected in court Tuesday. Related information:
