The doctor allegedly pronounced the woman dead in March after a caregiver found her without a pulse and not breathing at a retirement home. Later that evening, a worker at the funeral home where she’d been taken heard a scream from the refrigeration room and discovered the woman alive.
She died two days later in a hospital from heart disease.
