ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A St. Louis man is facing charges for allegedly infecting a woman
with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/zrwqVK) reports that 26-year-old
Jermaine Johnson is already charged in another crime -- allegedly dousing his
estranged girlfriend with lighter fluid and threatening to set her on fire as he raped
her. That victim is not the same woman in the HIV case.
Authorities say Johnson never told a woman that he was intimate with over a more than
two-year period that he was HIV positive, even though he had known for years.
Johnson remains at large.
