The man accused of killing a 25-year-old Summit County woman had his $1.5 million bond revoked in a hearing Tuesday and will have two new attorneys.
AKRON, Ohio - Defendant Chad Cobb will be arraigned in Judge Amy Corrigall Jones' courtroom Tuesday at 2 p.m., according to Summit County court officials.
The state of Ohio is seeking the death penalty for Cobb for the alleged murder of Ashley Biggs.
Police in New Franklin said Cobb killed 25-year-old Ashley Biggs in the early morning hours of June 21. She worked for Domino's Pizza and made a delivery to the side of a building on West Turkeyfoot Lake Road at 12:45 a.m.
When Biggs did not return, a missing persons report was filed. Police found evidence of a struggle at the location where the pizza was supposed to be delivered.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Office located Biggs' car in Chippewa Township hours later at about 11:30 a.m. Her body was inside the vehicle, according to New Franklin police, and she was bound with zip ties and had blunt force trauma to the head.
Cobb pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and kidnapping charges. Bond was previously set for $1.5 million.
Ashley Biggs' car was found with her body in it after she never returned from delivering a pizza. Defendant Chad Cobb will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon in the case.
Bond was set Friday for the Rittman man accused of killing the mother of their daughter while she was delivering a pizza in Akron last month, and following a bitter custody dispute between the two.
New Franklin police said Chad Cobb, 30, was engaged in a bitter child custody battle with Ashley Biggs, 25, the ex-girlfriend he is accused of murdering in Summit County.
