Investigators: Pesticide Likely Responsible for 4-Year-Old's Death
Family Loses 2nd Child in Suspected Pesticide Poisoning
Layton prosecutor, Dept. of Agriculture
announce charges in Toone case
April 28th, 2010 @ 9:54pm
LAYTON -- Layton prosecutors announced
Wednesday afternoon that a pesticide technician
and the company he worked for will be charged in
the deaths of two young sisters.
The Toone girls died in early February, after
technician Cole Nocks used a powerful chemical
to treat rodent infestation. Nocks has now been
charged with two counts of negligent homicide.
4-year-old Rebecca Toone
"Negligent homicide contemplates an
individual who acts with criminal negligence.
That conduct results in the death of an
individual," said Layton City Attorney Steve
Investigators said Nocks not only put in too
much pesticide in the rodent holes, but he also
placed it too close to the home.
"There was a substantial and unjustifiable
risk," Garside said. "A defendant should have
been aware of that risk, failed to foresee that
risk, which was a gross deviation of a standard
Bugman Pest and Lawn, the company Nocks works
for, is also facing charges for improper use of
this kind of pesticide.
Department of Agriculture also levels
Also present Wednesday was the Utah
Department of Agriculture and Food, the agency
directly involved in investigating how the pest
company and the pest technician used the
chemical phosphine in this case.
The Department has filed multiple charges of
violations of the Utah Pesticide Control Act
against Bugman Pest and Lawn and Cole Nocks for
the Feb. 5 incident.
A release from the Department states that
Nocks "operated in a faulty, careless or
negligent manner" and levels four specific
charges against Nocks and five charges against
Clark Burgess with the Utah Department of
Agriculture and Food said, "It shouldn't have
had to happen. That's the saddest part."
Among other charges, the Department release
states Nocks "failed to follow label directions
and federal law by applying large amounts of
Fumitoxin pellets in several locations that were
within a required 15-foot buffer zone" and that
"he did not have a fumigation management plan,
which would have required him to provide the
Toones with label information ... and require
him to return in one or two days to respect the
"We believe this tragedy could have been
prevented if the applicator and the company
would have followed the label directions,"
During an audit of Bugman's records from past
several years, the agency found approximately
3,000 recording violations.
In addition, investigators found the company
used phosphine incorrectly and without fumigant
management plan 53 times in a three-day period.
Often, technicians applied the chemical too
closely to homes, sometimes right under the
15-month-old Rachel Toone
The Department of Agriculture can only sue
Bugman and its employees in civil, not criminal,
court. It will have hearings for seven Bugman
employees who are responsible for the 53
above-mentioned occurrences. Each applicator
faces between two and eight counts of civil
The agency also says it will fine Nocks
$27,000 for his negligence and will revoke his
license. Bugman Pest and Lawn will also be fined
to the tune of $32,000.
Deaths prompt EPA pesticide changes
The Utah Medical Examiner's Office said both
Toone girls had elevated levels of phosphorous
and lung damage "consistent with inhaling a
A few weeks ago, the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency said aluminum and magnesium
fumigants, like phosphine, can no longer be used
Four-year-old Rebecca Toone and her
15-month-old sister, Rachel, died in February.
Investigators said they believe toxic phosphine
gas from the pellets seeped into the home and
sickened the girls.
At first, the Toone family thought they might
have a carbon monoxide leak when several family
members started feeling sick and their detector
sounded. They called the fire department, which
determined there was a small amount of CO, but
The home was cleared, and the next day
The Toone family has stayed mostly silent
during the investigation, but released a
statement saying they feel compassion for all
involved in the situation and hope for mercy for
those responsible for their great loss.
Prosecutors say the technician is tormented
by the girls' deaths.
"I think he's been devastated by the entire
incident," Garside said. "He explained to us
that he lost a child, he lost a 15-year-old in
an automobile accident, he told me, and so he's
Negligent homicide is a class A misdemeanor,
punishable by up to one year in jail for each
No charges have been filed against Bugman
Pest and Lawn at this point, but federal charges
are still possible.
