DETROIT — A 40-year-old woman broke down on the witness stand Wednesday as she testified how a gunman entered a bedroom and sexually assaulted her while her two kids slept in the same bed 14 years ago.

The woman said she was sleeping around 3:45 a.m. Feb. 17 when the man entered the one-bedroom apartment she shared with her sister and children, a baby and a 6-year-old.
