Des Moines, IA (AP) — A man whose body was found with his slain wife in their Akron home in July died of natural causes.
An autopsy shows the cause of death of Donald Neunaber was revealed Wednesday by Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo. It adds to the mystery of what happened at the home Donald and Esther Neunaber.

The bodies of 83-year old Donald, and 80-year old Esther, were found in their home July 9th. An autopsy showed Esther died of blunt force trauma. Her death was ruled homicide.
Their son 44-year-old Jonathan Neunaber is charged with first-degree murder. County Attorney Darin Raymond says Neunaber admitted to causing his mother’s death. He pleaded not guilty last week and remains in jail awaiting a Dec. 9th trial.
