DETROIT (AP) -- A Detroit police officer has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he sexually assaulted a 31-year-old woman who called 911 to report domestic abuse by her boyfriend.

The woman testified Friday during Deon Nunlee's preliminary examination that the assault took place Oct. 30 in a bedroom while Nunlee's partner was questioning her boyfriend in another part of the house.

She contacted police internal affairs the next day.

Nunlee is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to penetrate and misconduct. A May 9 arraignment in circuit court has been scheduled. Nunlee is suspended without pay.

Police Chief James Craig has said DNA evidence connected Nunlee to the sexual assault.

Defense attorney Antonio Tuddles says the case comes down to whether what happened was consensual or non-consensual.
