Two men are in custody after a 22-year old woman was taken to the Detroit Receiving Hospital after being kidnapped in Warren, Michigan. The woman was driven to Detroit, shot in the back, and set on fire, according to Warren Police Lt. Dan Beck. Miraculously, she recovered.
“She’s pretty good. She may even be released pretty soon,” Beck said.
Two men are being charged with the crime, one of them being the father of the woman’s child. Both are being charged with attempted murder. The men are expected to be arraigned on Tuesday.
The woman was kidnapped Saturday after dropping her child’s father off at his house. She was approached from behind, and had her hands and feet bound with duct tape. She was then doused with lighter fluid, set on fire and shot in the back.
Officials did not release the woman’s name or details of her injuries.
An ultrasound was performed, and the baby appeared to be fine, Geffert said.
The woman was able to put the fire out quickly by rolling on the ground.
