Brittany Murphy's Husband Died From Same Causes As Her

Simon Monjack died from acute pneumonia and severe anemia -– the same two causes of wife Brittany Murphy's death.

The 40-year-old was found dead May 23, five months after 32-year-old Murphy died.

The Los Angeles County Coroner found that while Monjack did have some prescription drugs in his system, he did not succumb to an overdose or multiple drug intoxication.

Sharon Murphy said that she was relieved that "the media speculation can stop" regarding what led to the death of her son-in-law.

"As I was sure of, just like my daughter Brittany there was no kind of drug overdose," she said in a statement.

"I am calling on the media to stop the reckless innuendos, that my daughter and son-in-law misused any kind of prescription medications. Thank you to the thousands of people who have sent letters and emails letting me know I am in their thoughts and prayers. I am getting stronger every day."

One more test will be conducted, at Monjack's family's request, before a full autopsy report is released in about two weeks.
