Man accused of HIV murder appears in court

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The man accused of murder in the death of a woman he gave HIV to will appear in court Tuesday.

Ronald Murdock infected Kimberly Klempner with HIV without her knowledge.

Klempner was Murdock's girlfriend for four years before finding out she was HIV positive.

Police said Murdock never told Klempner that he carried the disease.

She died in February as a result of the virus.

Klempner's son Josh said seeing Murdock in the courtroom was tough.

"It was nerve wracking, pretty happy with the outcome so far. It's rough, but it happened and now we're a little bit closer to closure," Josh Klempner said.

Murdock's bond was set at $5 million.

He is being charged with murder and felonious assault.

Murdock is also facing attempted murder charges for infecting another woman with HIV.
