Real-life 'Weekend at Bernie's

DENVER -- One of two men accused of taking a dead friend out for a night of drinking, dining and strippers failed to show up for a preliminary hearing in Denver on Tuesday.

According to Denver District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough, Mark Rubinson, 25, was due in court Tuesday morning on charges of abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.

On Aug. 27, investigators say Rubinson and Robert Young, 43, went for a night on the town in metro Denver with their friend, 43-year-old Jeffery Jarrett, dead in the backseat of their car.

They allegedly used Jarrett’s credit and debit cards to purchase drinks, food and to tip strippers at Shotgun Willie’s, a “gentlemen’s club” on Colorado Blvd. in Glendale.

Rubinson also faces prosecution in Boulder County where, in late September, he was arrested for driving under the influence after witnesses reported him driving erratically on South Boulder Rd. in Lafayette.
