DETROIT (AP) - A suburban Detroit man has been charged after an undercover police officer found the man’s 32-year-old wife shot and duct-taped in a pickup truck on Detroit’s eastside.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 35-year-old Radu Vasile Muntean of Hazel Park was arraigned Friday on assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and unlawful imprisonment charges.

Police have said the officer 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.

Muntean’s bond was set at $100,000. A probably cause conference is scheduled for April 4, followed by an April 11 preliminary examination.
