accidental death

Investigators say a man died at a VA hospital in Michigan after a nurse mistakenly believed he didn't want to be resuscitated in case of an emergency. The death occurred late last year at the hospital in Ann Arbor. The man's name and age weren't disclosed in a report released Tuesday by the inspector general at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The man, who had surgery to bypass a blocked artery, complained about chest pain and nausea.

Two women charged in the death of an 85-year-old woman who was found in cold weather outside an assisted living center in western Michigan have reached plea deals in the case. Denise Filcek on Wednesday entered a plea to a charge of intentionally placing false information on a chart involving medical records. Authorities say she was responsible for making bed checks. She told the judge, however, she didn't check on everyone. 

Police have released the crime scene investigation report about the death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell in a Detroit hotel room in May. The report released Tuesday through a Freedom of Information Act request states that the 52-year-old Cornell had a "well defined ligature mark present on the neck/throat area."
