PD: Scottsdale woman lived with husband's body for a month

Posted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

An elderly Scottsdale woman living with her dead husband told police she simply didn't know what to do after he died about a month ago.

The man underwent surgery at the beginning of the year and was staying at a medical facility to recover before moving in with his wife in early April, said Officer David Pubins of the Scottsdale Police Department.

The couple, both in their 70s, suffer from health issues, Pubins said.

A concerned family member called police after not hearing from the couple for some time. Officers found the deceased man at the couple's home on Friday, Pubins said. It was not revealed exactly when he died.

Pubins said no charges were going to be filed after the woman underwent a psychological evaluation and it was learned she suffers some mental issues and there was no criminal intent.
