The house in Carbonear where Trent Butt allegedly murdered his five-year-old daughter is now gone for good.

Wednesday morning, contractors made quick work of tearing down the house on Hayden Heights, which was heavily damaged by fire last April. It was during the fire call that Trent Butt and his daughter Quinn were found inside the home.
