A Salt Lake man facing prostitution charges in federal court - and who is being investigated in connection with the shooting death of his wife - has been ordered to remain in the Salt Lake County Jail pending trial.
U.S. Magistrate Calvin Gould ruled Monday morning that Paul Wach, and co-defendant Randy Pollock, be held without bail pending disposition of a federal complaint the FBI filed last week against the two men.The complaint, filed last week by the FBI, charges Wach, 27, and Pollock, 25, with transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of prostitution.
According to state court testimony earlier this year, Wach, who owned and operated an escort service, has not been ruled out as a suspect in the Dec. 13 death of his wife, Dee Dee Wach, 19, who was gunned down in front of her parents' home in Kearns.
During a federal court hearing Monday, Gould ruled that Wach and Pollock should be held without bail because of state charges Pollock faces and because Wach is a threat to the community, a court clerk said.
Gould also scheduled a preliminary hearing for Friday.
