Guy dies while trying to break into a house and the homeowner is in trouble.

Fine the homeowner $5.00 and be done with it.

A Brighton homeowner is in trouble with the city because an alleged break-in artist fell to his death early yesterday from a set of rickety exterior stairs attached to the manÂ’s two-story house.
The owner, whom the city did not identify, will be cited today for having an unsafe and dangerous structure at his two-family home at 89-91 Dustin St., said Lisa Timberlake, spokeswoman for the Inspectional Services Department.
“It was not properly secured,” Timberlake said of the stairs.
She said itÂ’s unclear whether the stairs, which are connected to the side of the house, were used for emergencies or everyday use.
A man who said he owned the home, but refused to give his name, told the Herald yesterday that the intruder climbed the wrought-iron spiral steps at 2:20 a.m. The interloper was kicking in a door that led to the ownerÂ’s entrance when the stairs gave way, the man said.
The well-kept $550,000 home is owned by Michael and Maryellen Grant, according to the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds. A man who answered the phone at the home yesterday said Michael Grant was not in.
Timberlake said the owner, who lives on the second floor, is in the process of appealing a violation given about six months ago for the same staircase. The owner was issued the first violation after the department received complaints from neighbors, she said.
Boston police are investigating. The interloper was taken to St. ElizabethÂ’s Medical Center after the collapse and pronounced dead. Police did not release his identity.

It sounds like it, which I hate to say sets the owner up for one BIG law suite.
