Detroit-area man found with corpse given probationNovember 21, 2013 @ 8:44 am
REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man who police say lived for several months in a Detroit-area trailer home with a woman's corpse has been sentenced to probation in the case.
Dennis McCauley was arrested this past spring after a court officer serving an eviction notice at the home in Redford Township stumbled upon the body of 72-year-old Ann Marquis sitting on a sofa. Autopsy results indicate she died of natural causes.
McCauley faced a number of charges, including mutilation of a corpse, larceny, uttering and publishing, identity theft and concealing a person's death.
The 64-year-old pleaded no contest last month to uttering and publishing, and mutilation of a corpse. The other charges were dismissed, and McCauley was spared jail time in favor of a punishment consisting of probation and community service.
