Sand Hill fight becomes attempted murder

Irene Budd

A longstanding dispute between neighbors in Sandhill Village has resulted in a mother and daughter being imprisoned on serious charges. The dispute dates back several years, but it started escalating back in May when Gilbert Blair was charged with Attempted Arson for allegedly trying to burn down the home of Irene Budd after an argument. If that wasn’t bad enough, the bad blood between the neighbors took a violent turn earlier this month and today Budd and her daughter, Ormencia Pou were charged with Attempted Murder, Dangerous Harm and Use of Deadly Means of Harm against Blair.

Ormencia Pou

Budd says that Blair first had problems with her son, Charles Pou, who is also in prison for unrelated charges. She claims that on September fourth, Blair attacked her younger son, Aaron Fuentes and both men both suffered injured in the fight, which involved several weapons including a machete. Fuentes was treated and released into police custody to be charged with Aggravated Assault. He is out on bail, but his mother and sister are now facing charges, because Blair has alleged that they too were involved in the fight and they caused severe injuries to his face. Blair told police that he had to undergo emergency surgery to save one of his eyes. Based on those allegations, both women were arraigned on Monday evening and have been remanded to prison until the case continues on November eleventh.

    This is such a sad story. I imagine you all know each other for generations yet you are behaving like idiots. I bet you don’t even know why you’re really fighting, grow up or move away.
