"Melendez is being held without bond until his sentencing on Dec. 3. His wife stormed out of the courtroom after Judge Vonda Evans announced Melendez's bond was denied.

"The jury this week rode in vans to see the street in Inkster where Floyd Dent was stopped by police and punched in the head 16 times by former Inkster police officer Melendez last January.
