Ronald Murdock, 51, of Toledo, is charged with assault and murder after his mistress, 51-year-old Kimberly Klempner, passed away from AIDS in February.
Murdock and Klempner dated for years, according to Klempner’s son, and in all that time Murdock never told her that he had HIV. She had never been tested, and didn’t know about the disease.
Now, Murdock is facing murder charges for withholding the truth from her.
“It would be different if he would let people know that he had it before he got in that relationship. He didn’t so that right there tells me and everybody else that he has no care. The only person he’s worried about is himself,” Josh Klempner, the son, said.
The Daily Mail reports:
‘He should of warned her. He should have told her. I don’t want him out here on the streets. The way I see it they should just bury him under the jail,’ he added.
Josh said his mother only found out that Murdock had HIV when she told him she was HIV positive in 2015 and he didn’t seem bothered about it. Then she looked through his medicine cabinet and made a startling find.
‘My mother found out about some pills he had. She stayed the night at his house one night and she felt something was up. She did some snooping and ran across a few pill bottles. She did a little research on them and found out that way,’ Klempner said.
When Murdock’s wife discovered the affair, she also told Klempner about Murdock’s HIV status.
According to Ohio law, those diagnosed with HIV are required to disclose the fact to their sexual partners.
HIV is spread through bodily fluids, such as sperm and saliva, but is most potent and contagious in blood. Many get the virus through sex or sharing needles.
It can usually be prevented by wearing a condom during sex, and taking a pill called PrEP.
