Michael Glenn

Michael Glenn, 21, faced a preliminary exam Tuesday morning at the 14A-1 District Court in Pittsfield Township. District Court Judge Christopher Easthope bound him over on all 10 felony counts he’s facing in connection with the Nov. 27 incident, according to court records.

Glenn stood mute and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf, records show. He’ll be back in court for a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. March 26 in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Donald Shelton, according to court records.

Glenn is accused of beating up his girlfriend in the driveway of his home in the 2300 block of McKinley Road in Ypsilanti Township.

According to deputies, the woman went to Glenn’s home with the intention of breaking up with him and getting some of her things from his home. Glenn got into her car and an argument started. Deputies said he punched the woman several times, grabbed an unknown object and stabbed her in the face repeatedly.

Glenn then allegedly strangled the woman to the point that she blacked out multiple times. He dragged her out of the car and ran her over with the vehicle several times before trying to put her in the trunk, according to deputies.

The woman fought against Glenn and managed to convince him she wouldn’t leave him, escaping from the trunk. He went inside his home and she ran to a neighbor’s home. After that deputies were called. Glenn stole the woman’s car and drove away before investigators could arrive, according to deputies.

He was on the lam until mid-January, when he was arrested in Detroit. He’s lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

Glenn is charged with two counts each of assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and assault with a dangerous weapon. He faces one charge each of carjacking, motor vehicle theft, unlawful imprisonment and domestic violence.

No doubt the accused will use the George Costanza Defense which goes, "Was that wrong?" When dealing with convicted woman abusers / killers, we might want to take a hint from the Bible and create a lake of fire into which they would be cast.

Must have been wonderwoman to have been beaten, stabbed, strangled to the point of blacking out, run over by a vehicle -- all several times -- then been able to run away. Maybe those who want to put women in the military in front line combat situations were thinking of people like her?

Will this "gentleman " have the opportunity to opt for a more fair judge ??? Possibly Melinda Morris ?? This way he could get a suspended sentence and community service . We wouldn't want his rights to be trampled on. I am sure with just a little therapy and comseling ,he could become a model citizen. And this ridiculous $250,000 bond ???...puhleeze ..he should be released on his own personal recognisance. And Yes ..i am being facetious ..but then again in Washtenaw County ...anything is possible.

Waste of space.

Here I am (again) just shaking my head. She wants to break up with leave. Find someone else. It is not worth spending even a day in jail over someone else. Maybe some anger management while in jail?

Should not have been given the chance for bail! But I doubt any bail bondsman will be beating the door to the cell down to bail him out!

Give a violent individual like that a bond!?!?! I don't care if it was a 5 million dollar bond. He doesn't deserve a chance to be back out in society. When he kills someone while he's out on bond (if he bonds out) then Michigan will finally lock him up and throw away the key. Why why why give this man a bond washtenaw county?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Why does it take someone dying for out system to finally get and keep these criminals off the streets!?!?!
