Police: 85-Year-Old Detroit Man's Body Found Stuffed In Cabinet

DETROIT (AP) — The body of an 85-year-old Detroit man was found in a cabinet in the basement of his home, police said.

A 38-year-old man who was inside the house when police arrived Tuesday was charged with murder in the death of Albert Wright, the Wayne County prosecutor's office said Thursday.

Police were asked to check on Wright after he hadn't been seen for several days.

"It is alleged that the defendant stole personal items from the victim and subsequently killed him," the prosecutor's office said.
