As reported by Arkansas Online, four years ago Alex and Martha McKindra, both 63, checked into the Hilton Garden Inn Ontario/Rancho Cucamonga while visiting their son in California. The couple’s attorney, Brian Virag, said Martha McKindra still thinks about bed bugs often, fears hotels and struggles to sleep.
