Real-Life 'Weekend at Bernies' Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

From: Huffington Post


DENVER -- A man accused of driving around Denver with a dead friend, running up a bar tab and withdrawing money from the friend's credit card at a strip club ATM has pleaded not guilty.

KCNC-TV reports ( http://cbsloc.al/unEUAP ) 43-year-old Robert Young pleaded not guilty to identity theft and abuse of a corpse in court Thursday in a case that's bears some similarity to the movie "Weekend at Bernie's."

Young previously told reporters he thought 43-year-old Jeffrey Jarrett was passed out drunk when they found him Aug. 27, not dead. The Denver medical examiner's office ruled that Jarrett died of alcohol, cocaine and prescription drug intoxication.

Co-defendant 25-year-old Mark Rubinson is due in court Friday.
