The future does not look bright for residents of Justice House.
The low- income apartment building is now without electricity.
And for short while yesterday, residents were even without water.
This all comes in the midst of the ongoing dispute over who is responsible for Justice House.
Scott Prince has the story.

The loss of power came as no surprise to residents here.
But they certainly weren't expecting the water to be shut off.
For two hours it was-- and water officials point the finger at the Hayden family.
David Hayden founded Justice House five years ago and his wife was listed as the person responsible for paying the water bills.
Hayden told News 7 he DID have his wife's name taken off the account, but he didn't know that meant the water supply would dry up.
Right now Justice House residents aren't concerned with who is responsible for the bills.
And they're not concerned about questions surrounding ownership or management.
They just want a home for themselves and their children.

Martinsville thought they had a murder suspect, instead they nabbed a man with a stash of counterfeit cash.
Police made the find while searching a suspect who they believed was involved in Sunday night's fatal shooting of 25- year- old Orbin Smith, Junior.
They found a sealed plastic bag on the man containing some 14-hundred dollars in counterfeit bills.
The money has been turned over to the Secret Service-- which is now handling the investigation.
Meanwhile, police still have NOT made any arrests in the murder.

The govenor-played by Richard Krenna-is running a corrupt outfit and Caruso is caught in the cover-up.

More than 60 people gathered at yesterday's memorial service and signed the petition.

Smithfield Foods' contribution went to Allen's "Campaign for Honest Change." It is the largest corporate donation to the PAC (pack).
Smithfield and state regulators are negotiating over fines the company could owe for dumping polluted wastewater into a river near Smithfield.
The company has been cited two dozen times over the past 18 months.
An Allen administration official says there is NO connection between the political contribution and Smithfield's negotiations over the fines.
