LOS ANGELES (AP) - Marty Ingels, a comedian, actor and talent agent who was married to actress Shirley Jones for nearly 40 years, has died in Los Angeles. He was 79.

A statement on behalf of Jones says Ingels died Wednesday in the Tarzana neighborhood following complications from a stroke.

Beginning in the 1960s Ingels appeared in episodes of many TV shows, including "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Bewitched" and co-starred in the 1962 series "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster."

He married Jones in 1977.
