Detroit-Area Man Charged after Wife Found Duct-taped, Shot

DETROIT (CBS NEWS)- Authorities say a suburban Detroit man has been charged after an undercover police officer found the man's wife shot and duct-taped in a pickup truck on Detroit's east side.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says 35-year-old Radu Vasile Muntean of Hazel Park faces charges including assault with intent to commit murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and unlawful imprisonment. He's due in court Friday.

A prosecutor's spokeswoman says she doesn't believe he has a lawyer on record.

Police have said the officer from nearby Grosse Pointe Park saw the pickup in a field Wednesday and the driver told the officer he was out of gas and showed a fake police badge. The officer noticed a woman in the front seat who'd been beaten and shot in both legs.
