MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - The warden at two Michigan prisons has retired, a week after she was suspended for reasons that haven’t been publicly disclosed.

The Corrections Department says Mary Berghuis retired Thursday with full benefits. She was a state employee for 49 years.

Berghuis was warden at the Brooks and West Shoreline prisons in the Muskegon area. Spokesman Chris Gautz says the retirement ends the investigation. He won’t say why Berghuis was suspended.

The Muskegon Chronicle says Berghuis was credited with creating programs to rehabilitate prisoners, including a Shakespeare program and a chapel at Brooks that opened in May.
