Police: Man cuffed mother to car, started engine

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a suburban Detroit man tried to kill his mother by handcuffing the 78-year-old to the outside of a car parked in a garage, turning on the engine and leaving the 78-year-old to asphyxiate.

Police in Oakland County's Waterford Township tell The Oakland Press of Pontiac that Gloria A. Lutz managed to escape after about 4 hours. WWJ-AM says she ran to a neighbor's home for help.

The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV say the incident happened early Tuesday.

Forty-five-year-old Adam D. Lutz was arraigned Thursday on attempted murder charges. District Judge Richard Kuhn ordered him ailed on a $1 million bond.

The court said Thursday he doesn't have a lawyer on record.
