Los Angeles prosecutors have rejected filing elder abuse charges against Casey Kasem's widow.
A charge evaluation sheet released Friday by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office states there is insufficient evidence to file charges against Jean Kasem.
She was married to the radio personality for more than 30 years but was stripped of control over his medical care in the final days of his life.
Casey Kasem died in June 2014 in Washington state, where his wife took him after removing him from a medical facility where he was receiving around-the-clock care.
The longtime "American Top 40" host had a form of dementia and severe bedsores when he died.
His daughter, Kerri Kasem, was named his conservator and sought elder abuse charges against her stepmother.
