Hazel Park man strangles wife to death, sleeps with her body for week, police say
HAZEL PARK, Mich. – A Hazel Park man is accused of strangling his wife to death -- because she accused him of cheating on her -- and then sleeping with her body in the bed for a week, police said. Police officers and firefighters went to the home and found Klepsch, 64, dead in her bed. The Hazel Park police chief said Sherwood admitted to striking, kicking and strangling his wife. They had been arguing because Klepsch accused him of infidelity, according to authorities. Sherwood was arraigned Monday at 43rd District Court in Hazel Park on charges on a first-degree murder charge.
