April 9, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A man has pleaded not guilty to a felonious assault charge in the shooting of his pregnant girlfriend, who died after her baby was delivered at an Ohio hospital.

The Springfield News-Sun reports 25-year-old Travis Hypes, of Springfield, entered his plea Monday in Clark County and is being held on $750,000 bond in the shooting last week.

Court records listed no attorney for him.

Police previously said Hypes told them his handgun discharged during an altercation with the 23-year-old woman, Lindsey Marsh.

Authorities say Marsh was at least 30 weeks pregnant when she was shot in the head. She was flown to a Dayton hospital, and her baby was delivered by cesarean section before she died.
