Man Allegedly Assisted With Suicide

THURMAN, IA (AP) - A southwestern Iowa man has been charged with assisting or participating in the suicide of his girlfriend.

The Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil reports that 58-year-old James Allen Zingg of Thurman was arrested Friday by Fremont County Sheriff's deputies after a months-long investigation.   

Deputy Tim Bothwell says the crime occurred on January 17th, when Zingg is accused of participating in the death of 47-year-old Gwendolyn Nelson Melloway in Thurman.   

Melloway's body was taken to the Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office in Ankeny, and officials say she died from a prescription drug overdose.

Investigators say Zingg's toxicology report showed he had "relatively low levels" of drugs in his system.   

Zingg is being held in the Fremont County Jail on a $10,000 bond and could not be reached Saturday for comment.
