IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- A 39-year-old man from Jackson, Wyoming, is charged with killing his pregnant girlfriend at her cabin near Driggs, Idaho.

Erik Martin Ohlson was charged Wednesday with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 39-year-old Jennifer Nalley and her unborn child. He did not enter a plea and is being held without bond. His preliminary hearing is set for July 20 in Teton County, Idaho.

Ohlson had been charged Tuesday with driving under the influence after crashing into a tree about 3 miles from Nalley's home at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. He had just appeared in court on the DUI when a relative found Nalley's body.

An autopsy found she was shot several times by a .45-caliber handgun.

Nalley has a physics degree and is a founding member of the Texas Rollergirls roller derby league.
