The Internal Revenue Service filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday to foreclose on a former dentist's house in Brentwood in an attempt to recover more than $260,000 in taxes and penalties the dentist and his wife owed when they died in 2008.

John J. Hucko, 60, and Martha Ann Hucko, 61, were found dead in their home in 2008. An intravenous line was hooked up to John Hucko, who was lying near his wife.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that Martha Hucko's death was a homicide and her husband's death was a suicide.

The IRS sued the estate so it can sell the home to recover the unpaid taxes.
