Barry Mallatere [pictured], president of the company that operated the Best Western hotel in Boone, turned himself in Friday at the Watauga County Magistrate’s Office. He is facing charges related to the three deaths which occurred there in 2013. His bond was set for $40, 000 and he paid it and was released.

The Watauga County District Attorney’s Office announced on Wednesday that a grand jury handed up indictments against Appalachian Hospitality Management President Barry Damon Mallatere.

Mallatere was charged with three counts of involuntary manslaughter and one count of assault inflicting serious bodily injury.

Mallatere's attorney said that his client is disappointed that the District Attorney decided to press criminal charges against him after hearing the facts.

"Appalachian Hospitality Management employees did swap out a pool heater from The Sleep Inn to the Best Western in November of 2011," said Mallatere's attorney.

The charges stem from a string of deaths related to carbon monoxide poisoning at the hotel. Daryl and Shirley Jenkins died last April. Two months later, 11 year-old Jeffery Williams died and his mother, Jeannie, suffered debilitating injuries.
