SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Authorities in Scottsdale said an elderly woman lived
with her dead husband for about a month.

else to do.
The man, in his 70s, underwent surgery at the beginning of this year and was
staying at a medical facility to recover before moving in with his wife in early
Phoenix TV station KPHO said a concerned family member
called police after not hearing from the couple for some time.
Officers found the deceased man at the couple’s home last Friday.
It’s unclear when the man died.
Police haven’t released the couple’s names.
