A former Ohio doctor has pleaded guilty in the heroin death of an expectant mother who died after answering a Craigslist ad.
Datko says Salim also entered a type of guilty plea to a count of rape where he maintains his innocence but acknowledges prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him.
The 44-year-old Salim entered the pleas Thursday ahead of his scheduled trial.
Salim was charged with kidnapping, raping and killing Deanna Ballman last year by injecting her with heroin, as well as killing her unborn daughter. Investigators say Ballman answered a personal ad placed by Salim.
