SALINA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a heating contractor charged in the carbon monoxide death of his 6-year-old daughter at his Syracuse-area home has been arrested for swindling two prospective renters of his property.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says 37-year-old Glenn Collins was charged Tuesday with scheme to defraud and grand larceny.

Deputies say Collins refused to return security deposits to two people who wanted to rent his home in the suburban town of (suh-LY’-nuh) but changed their minds after the house proved to be uninhabitable.

In October, Collins was charged with manslaughter for the summertime death of his daughter from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a portable generator he left running in the basement while he spent the night at a casino. His 14-year-old son was sickened but survived.

Collins is in jail without bail. His lawyer wasn’t available for comment.
