WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- The owner of a defunct Delaware country club property is facing fines of $250 a day after inspectors say the 111-acre site has fallen into disrepair.

In the meantime, New Castle County inspectors say they have found multiple code violations.

The News Journal in Wilmington reports http://delonline.us/2yM9UMy ) the county has started fining Capano $250 a day.

The alleged violations include a partially filled swimming pool littered with debris, high grass and a dead tree.
