SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's attorney general says he's charged a Tennessee man and woman for forcing a young woman to work as a stripper.
Bill Schuette says 30-year-old Vinson Alexander and 27-year-old Taryn Johnson of Nashville are charged with human trafficking. Schuette says Alexander also is charged with torturing and assaulting the 18-year-old woman.
Schuette says the charges follow an investigation by police in the Detroit suburb of Southfield and by the FBI.
Schuette says Johnson recruited the woman in December, luring her with promises of good pay. He says Alexander took the young woman's earnings and threatened violence to control her, seriously injuring her Thursday.
A Southfield judge arraigned the suspects Monday and set bonds for them. They're due back in court Friday.
The court couldn't say if they've got lawyers.
