A former TV news anchor in Michigan who was accused of embezzling from a man she dated and advised financially has been found dead in her home.

Police tell The Detroit News that a relative found Suzanne Wangler unresponsive Saturday afternoon in her home in suburban Royal Oak. Detective Dan Swiatkowski isn't confirming how she died but says an autopsy is planned.

The 42-year-old Wangler retired last week from Lansing station WLAJ, where she worked under the name Suzanne Page. She previously worked at WDIV-TV in Detroit.

She had been arraigned on felony charges of embezzlement by an agent and larceny by conversion. Each charge carried a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
