Criminal charges won't be filed in the death of a 93-year-old Bay City man who froze inside his home after a utility installed a power-limiting device because of unpaid bills. Bay County Prosecutor Kurt Asbury says there's no evidence anyone knowingly ignored Marvin Schur's situation. He says the death was caused by an unfortunate combination of circumstances.
The prosecutor made his decision after getting the results of a Michigan State Police investigation and an autopsy. Neighbors discovered Schur's body Jan. 17 in the home about 90 miles northwest of Detroit. He apparently suffered memory loss as a result of Alzheimer's disease.
