COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man charged with aggravated murder, rape and other counts in an Ohio State University student’s slaying and with separate counts related to several armed robberies has pleaded not guilty.
Twenty-nine-year-old Brian Golsby is charged in Reagan Tokes’ slaying. The 21-year-old woman’s body was found in February at a park in Grove City, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Columbus.
The Columbus man didn’t speak at his hearing Monday. His attorney entered the plea for him.
Police say they matched Golsby’s DNA evidence from Tokes’ car.
Franklin County’s prosecutor has said GPS data from an ankle monitor Golsby had worn since his November release after serving a prison sentence for attempted rape and robbery placed him at the park the night Tokes was killed.
