TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A woman charged with killing her husband as he lay in a Florida hospital bed last year has died.
Jan Sochalski faced a murder charge for allegedly suffocating her husband last May after he suffered life-threatening complications following back surgery. Sixty-four-year-old Henry Sochalski was a retired Trenton, New Jersey, police officer.
The couple lived in Florida.
The Flagler County Sheriff's Office told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that Jan Sochalski was found dead at her home in Palm Coast on Thursday.
A deputy who had been dispatched for a wellness check found the 62-year-old woman slumped over a chair on the back porch.
Sochalski was a retired nurse.
Police told the newspaper they don't believe her death was suspicious.
