REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich- A man in the Detroit area is facing charges, after police say he lived with a woman’s corpse for nearly six months.

That discovery was made after the landlord at Long’s Mobile Home Court in Redford Township visited the trailer of 72-year-old Annie Marquis to evict her for not paying rent. Officials say Marquis hadn’t paid in several months, and hadn’t been seen by her friends either. When the landlord knocked on the door, police say the manager saw Marquis’ decomposing body on a sofa in the living room.

Police say Marquis, who died of natural causes, had been decomposing there since November, and that her roommate, 64-year-old McCauley never reported it. Police say instead, he lived with her dead body and used her money.

On Friday, McCauley was arraigned on charges for failing to report a death, mutilation of a corpse and identity theft.
