On April 10, 2013, the Medical Board of Ohio suspended the license of psychiatrist Ali Salim.
Salim was arrested on or about February 20, 2013 following an indictment in the Court of Common Pleas, Delaware County, Ohio, charging him with two counts of murder, rape, felonious assault, corrupting another with drugs, kidnapping, two counts of tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.
News reports state that Salim is accused of injecting a 23-year-old pregnant woman with a lethal dose of heroin and then “doing ‘inhumane’ things to her corpse.” The woman had answered a Craigslist ad that Salim had placed, allegedly for housecleaning.
Salim has pleaded not guilty on all charges and was released from custody on February 25 on conditions which include house arrest and GPS monitoring.
Salim has declined to provide the Board with certain factual information concerning the pending criminal matter against him.
