Jeffrey Charles Salt, who is the director of Great Salt Lakekeeper, was bound over for trial Thursday following a hearing at which his former girlfriend described how he allegedly beat her.

Salt, 49, is charged with third-degree felony aggravated assault and class A misdemeanor unlawful detention in connection with the June incident. Prosecutors have asked the court to amend the assault charge to make it a second-degree felony.

Third District Judge Vernice Trease set Oct. 3 for an arraignment for Salt.
