MONROE, Michigan — Authorities say a Michigan man lived with his girlfriend’s corpse for about a month before officers found it while performing a welfare check.

The Monroe News reported Wednesday that 49-year-old David M. Hall of 48 East Noble Ave in Monroe, was arraigned last week on a charge of concealing the death of an individual.

Authorities say 56-year-old Kandace Simmons appears to have died in early December. Officers found her body in an apartment bedroom after the landlord asked the police to check on the couple.

Simmons and Hall had a 10-year stormy relationship. Police were called to the apartment routinely and both had been charged with domestic violence on several occasions in the past. The Monroe News cites.

Monroe police Lt. J.D. Wall told the newspaper that Hall didn’t give a clear explanation as to why he didn’t report the death, or why he continued living in the apartment with her body in a bedroom.

“He didn’t give clear answers,” Monroe Police Lt. J.D. Wall told The Monroe News. “There are a lot of unknowns.”

Autopsy results are pending, but Wall says there were no obvious signs of trauma to Simmons’ body.

Hall’s attorney declined to comment Wednesday.

Monroe is about 35 miles south of Detroit.
