A former GM employee and her husband have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Detroit in an industrial spying case. Ex-GM worker Shanshan Du and her husband Yu Qin are accused of photocopying thousands of documents relating to hybrid vehicle technology.

Prosecutors allege that the couple attempted to pass the documents on to a Chinese company, but destroyed the documents once an investigation began. The two are scheduled to appear in court today.
