STRATFORD - The father of former Stratford mayor Jim Miron has agreed to pay back more than $78,000 to people who never received the tombstones they ordered.

Richard Miron is accused of taking deposits from 70 customers through his company, Lakeview Monuments, and then never delivering.

The settlement with state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal also places a seven-year ban on Miron working in the monument business.
