DELAWARE -- An Ohio prosecutor says she'll ask for a high bond when a doctor charged with rape and two counts of murder in the death of a pregnant woman appears in court.
Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O'Brien says the investigation into Dr. Ali Salim was not easy and involved a lot of evidence.
O'Brien says she'll ask for a "significant cash bond" when Salim makes his initial appearance in court today.
The New Albany man was indicted by a Delaware County grand jury on nine felony counts in last summer's deaths of 23-year-old Deanna Ballman of Pataskala and her unborn child.
Salim's attorney, Sam Shamansky, says his client will plead not guilty to the charges.
