Elderly man 'cooked alive' by defective heating, cooling system, lawsuit says

BLOOMFIELD — Every Sunday, Neal A. DiNapoli III typically delivered groceries to his grandparents at their apartment at Felicity Tower in Bloomfield, court documents state.

But when DiNapoli and his fiancé knocked on his grandparents' door in the afternoon of Dec. 13, 2015, there was no answer and they sensed a blistering heat coming from the apartment, court documents state.
