WUPPERTAL, GERMANY - Police in Germany Friday said a 54- year-old man watched television in his living-room next to the decomposed body of his wife for more than a year - because he loved her so much.

The 53-year-old woman apparently succumbed to complications from chronic alcoholism in April 2004. Her body was found on the floor next to the living room sofa after the landlord summoned police on a hunch. An autopsy revealed no indication of foul play.

The husband said the two had spent their happiest times together in front of the TV set and he could not bear to part with her.

Police waived criminal charges, handing him over to psychiatrists for counselling.
