Last week, 51-year-old Ronald Murdock of Toledo was indicted on charges of murder and felonious assault, both counts related to his relationship with a woman whom he dated for several years without letting her know about his health condition.
Prosecutors say Ron Murdock knowingly infected her with HIV https://t.co/pelFQKGZof— WOBBFM (@WOBBFM) 8 июня 2017 г.
Ohio, along with several other US states, has a law obliging HIV-positive people to disclose their disease to their sexual partners.
"It would be different if he had let people know that he had [HIV] before he got in that relationship, but he didn't," said Josh Klempner, the son of the alleged victim.
"So that right there tells me and everybody else that he has no care."
According to a police report, Murdock's wife told Klempner her husband was HIV-positive after she found out about the affair, but it was too late.
On Tuesday, a judge set bond for Murdock at $1.5 million. If convicted of murder, he faces a sentence of up to life in prison.
