The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee died at a Chicago hospital Thursday from complications of meningitis, according to his wife, Brenda Edwards. He was 74 and had lived in the St. Louis area for more than 30 years.        Legendary Temptations singer Dennis Edwards, of Florissant, dies at 74     Legendary Temptations singer Dennis Edwards, of Florissant, dies at 74   He moved to St. Louis in the 1980s.        Court documents filed by an adult protective services investigator allege that weeks before the singer’s death, Brenda Edwards abused her husband.  An investigator with the Healthcare Consortium of Illinois filed the protection order request on behalf of Dennis Edwards Jan. 12 in Chicago, where the couple lived together before Edwards’ death.  The documents allege that Brenda Edwards had attempted to suffocate the 74-year-old by holding his head facedown on a bed. The investigator also accused Brenda Edwards of taking her husband’s hearing aids from him, according to a petition for an order of protection. The documents say Edwards was “bed bound and immobile.”  Dennis Edwards was removed from the home because of medical issues, according to the Jan. 12 document.  An emergency protective order against Brenda Edwards was granted Jan. 18, barring her from contact with Dennis Edwards. A hearing that would have allowed Brenda Edwards to respond to the allegations was scheduled for Friday, but was canceled after her husband’s death the day before.  The protective order was vacated on Friday, after Dennis Edwards’ death.  Brenda Edwards disputed the allegations in a brief statement released Monday night. “I loved Dennis, and we were married for 18 years,” she said. “I would have never done anything to harm him. These allegations are false and defamatory and will be proven as such. Until this is all over, I have no further comment.”  The Chicago Police Department confirmed Monday that there is an open criminal investigation into the matter.
