a family in virginia beach is having a hard time feeling welcome in their own neighborhood. they moved from texas two years ago and started to build their dream home -- but have faced numerous hurdles along the way. 10 on your side investigative reporter chris horne looks into why this case is so unusual. when a home is being built, neighbors can file a complaint with city inspectors if they think there's something wrong. but here's the rub - they don't have to give their name. we investigated an upscale home in a neighborhood to match on the lynhaven river. a well-respected contractor with decades of waterfront experience began construction about two years ago. and then, the complaints began. the position of the home, the amount of construction debris, the amount of turf on the property, the height of the home. about seven times the average number of complaints, even for a deluxe home like this. and about half of those complaints have been anonymous. the homeowner's attorney says it became excessive. bill bischoff homeowner's
4:39 pm
norm is ten inspections, and they get 68, and not one of them resulted in a stop work order or a violation of any shape or form, something's wrong. and since that interview, homeowner byron woodard says there have been several more inspections at his new spanish style home. total inspections now - more than 70. so what is the city's responsibility when the number of complaints about a new home goes far above the average? see my investigation coming up at 6-15. chris horne 10 on your side a judge has found a virginia beach woman guilty of murdering her friend -- in september 20-14, 41-year-old sarah flanders ran down richard pentz in the parking lot of plaza middle school. family members told us, they were in an on-and-off relationship. after the crash, police found her vehicle and linked d-n-a evidence to flanders. they charged her with murder and hit and run. she could face 50 years in prison when she's sentenced in june. investigators are looking

purse. the suspect pushed the victim up against a toolbox. (carol/fought off attacker) "so i grabbed a stapler gun and i smacked him on the side of the head. he again and i said i will crush your skull in if you touch me again." the attacker ran off. police are still looking for the suspect. a man is behind bars facing charges including attempted murder for two violent attacks in florida. police say the suspect in the red hat walked into a gas station and started swinging a metal pole at an 82-year-old man. an elderly woman with the victim fought off the attacker. then the suspect walked out of the store. about an hour later --- police say the suspect violentally swung a sword at a clerk and chased that victim around the store. the clerk fought him off. witnesses pinned down the suspect until police arrived and arrested him. detectives are investigating a motive. both victims went to the hospital and are okay. a wisconsin couple is facing charges after police say they allowed a

(capt. steve smith/polk county sheriff's office) "she was seated in the passenger seat position, and an 11-month-old child behind them in the back of the truck..." "we're just very fortunate that no one was injured or killed in this incident." when deputies asked the couple why they let the nine-year-old drive --- they said the girl was practicing her driving. the child's mother and the woman's boyfriend face charges of reckless endangerment and child neglect. other family members are taking care of the after police say he threw an alligator through a fast-food restuarant's drive-thru window! the man's mother says it
