Wild night of gunshots, a naked woman and ex-wife lead to trial

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

A state lawmaker from Detroit has been ordered to trial for assault and other charges after testimony about a wild night of gunshots, a naked woman and his ex-wife.

Sen. Virgil Smith is accused of destroying his ex-wife's Mercedes-Benz with gunfire. His ex-wife Anistia Thomas says she had resumed an intimate relationship with Smith but found him with a naked woman when she arrived at his home after midnight in May.

Thomas says Smith, a Democrat, punched her and pushed her out the door. He then fired many shots, destroying the $35,000 car. A judge heard enough evidence Thursday to send the case to trial in Wayne County court. Smith didn't comment.

The other woman, Tatiana Grant, says she didn't see Smith hit his ex-wife but she wasn't wearing her contact lenses.
