MOUNT MORRIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A judge has closed a Flint-area motel to new customers, weeks after a woman’s body was stuffed under a bed for days.

The Genesee County prosecutor’s office says the Great Western Inn in Mount Morris Township is notorious for prostitution and drug use. Assistant prosecutor Patrick McCombs says, “They’re dropping like flies over there.” Police have been called at least 106 times in six months.

Judge Judith Fullerton closed the motel to new customers Tuesday. The Flint Journal says she’ll revisit the case in October.

A woman’s body was found stuffed under a bed in June. Two people have been charged with murder.

The motel’s attorney, Chris Christenson, says he needed more time to go through police reports and other documents. He called the hearing unfair.
