AKRON, Ohio- Bond has been set for a Rittman man charged in the death of his ex-girlfriend.
30-year-old Chad Cobb pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and kidnapping charges in Chief Magistrate John Schumaker’s courtroom Friday morning.
Last month, the body of 25-year-old Ashley Biggs, of Akron, was found inside her car. Biggs worked for a Domino’s Pizza on South Main Street in Akron. She’d been assigned to delivery at a business on West Turkeyfoot Lake Road and was instructed to go to the back door.
Investigators say when Biggs didn’t return, her coworkers filed a missing persons report.
New Franklin Township officers went to the delivery address on Turkeyfoot Lake Road. That’s when, police say, officers found blood and signs of a struggle at the scene.
Hours later, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office alerted officials in Summit County that Biggs’ body was found in her car in a rural area.
According to Akron Municipal Court records, Cobb was convicted of domestic violence back in 2005. He was sentenced to probation and anger management classes, and ordered not to have “domestic disturbances with Ashley Biggs.”
The former couple has a child together.
Cobb’s bond was set for $1.5 million. He will be back in court July 18th.
