WILTON, Conn. -- An ongoing property dispute in Wilton has escalated to the point where both neighbors are now facing charges, according to police.

Officers were called to 1 Lennon Lane on Sunday, May 15, after resident Margaret Sullivan complained that her neighbors were cutting down a tree on her property, police said.

Police said that they have had to intervene in several dust-ups between Sullivan and her family and the Campbell family next door.
