A 22-year-old Detroit man will stand trial on charges he broke into a home and shot a woman.

Terry Lyons was bound over Tuesday after being charged with assault, home invasion and other charges in connection with the Feb. 8 incident on Sussex Street.

Police said 72-year-old Thelma Truesdale told them she woke up to find a man in her home and was then shot in the arm and leg.

Police followed a trail of footprints in the snow from the Truesdale's house to a nearby vacant house and found Lyons hiding in a furnace box in the basement.

The woman is expected to be OK.
