My son died due to carbon monoxide poisoning and there has been a criminal charges brought against the landlord of the building he lived. Can I also sue the owner for wrongful death? How does these charges affect the case if one is possible??

First, please accept my heart felt condolences on the loss of your son. Take comfort if you can, that he is in a far better place and, someday you will see him again.
As to your inquiry, if the carbon monoxide leak resulted from the landlord's negligence, as the criminal charges indicate it did, then you would have a viable wrongful death claim against him.
A criminal conviction is a strong indication of the strength of such a case.
