Gun and assault charges against state Rep. Raymond Murphy were dropped Thursday after his wife, Lynette Murphy, showed up for a court hearing, then left before it started. Murphy, 70, D-Detroit, was arraigned last month on charges that he threatened his wife with a gun. On Tuesday, he won the Democratic nomination for the state Senate's 3rd District. Lynette Murphy was to testify against her husband at the preliminary examination in Detroit's 36th District.
