Police say a woman kept the body of her dead boyfriend inside their southern Michigan house for 18 months.

Jackson police Lt. Chris Simpson says the body of 67-year-old Charles Zigler was discovered last week covered in a chair. He tells that a woman who lived with Zigler knew he had died in December 2010.

No foul play is suspected in the death. Police went to Zigler's home Friday after family members said they hadn't seen him for a long time.

The case is being investigated for possible charges. The 71-year-old woman who lived with Zigler has not been arrested. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
