The Toone family discovered a persistent rodent problem at their home in Layton, Utah. They called Bugman Pest and Lawn, Inc. to treat it. Coleman Nocks, who was a licensed commercial applicator of pesticides and employee of Bugman Pest and Lawn, Inc., applied Fumitoxin, a restricted use pesticide, at the Toone home. Nocks failed to follow the law by applying an excessive dose of the pesticide too close to the home. The poison then seeped into the Toone's home and caused the death of 4-year old Rebecca Toone and 15-month old Rachel Toone.
