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 Mlive.com 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 a niece hadn't seen him for a long time.

Simpson says police are investigating whether Zigler's death was concealed for reasons of financial fraud. The 71-year-old woman who
lived with him has not been arrested. Her name was not released.
