Ronchi 'wanted to get away'

Testimony continues for man who killed his pregnant girlfriend


“Were you dogging Ms. Slowick? Were you trying to be in a relationship?” Swomley asked, waving his arms.

“No,” Ronchi said.

But after Swomley suggested that it was Galperina’s idea not to tell anyone about the pregnancy, Curran took another turn at questioning Ronchi on the issue.

In fact, hadn’t Ronchi told many others about the pregnancy, including his brother, his children and ex-wife, along with a fellow massage therapist and another friend of his, the prosecutor asked.

“There were a few,” he conceded.
