SALT LAKE CITY -- A Salt Lake City pediatrician charged with killing his ex-wife will remain in jail on $1.5 million cash-only bail.
Utah District Court Judge Robin W. Reese said Monday during the hearing that he was not likely to change the bail without knowing the case. The attorney for 49-year-old John Brickman Wall then decided to withdraw his request and wait until the judge assigned to the case is back next month.
Judge Reese did not allow Wall's oldest son, 19-year-old Pelle Wall, to testify Monday on behalf of his mother, Uta Von Schwedler. John Wall is charged with killing Von Schwedler, a University of Utah biologist.
Pelle Wall said even though the hearing went differently than planned, he was happy that his father will remain behind bars.
