," June 25, 2007, that has been edited for clarity. We continue now with our own Laura Ingle, who was in the courtroom today. Some people that stood up for him are now saying, "I'm not really sure what to think anymore with this new evidence and the discovery and the arrest." One of our producers went over and knocked on the door of his current wife. But she said through the door that she is not doing well. That was his guise, always acting like he was joking when he would do things to hurt me. And in 2007, we got the emergency protection orders. You felt he was capable of this type of brutal murder? ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Case number 2007-CRA-802: the State of Ohio v. And joining us now with an inside look at the man accused of this gruesome double murder, the ex-girlfriend of Bobby Cutts, Nikki Giavasis, and her attorney, Crystal Boultinghouse. NIKKI GIAVASIS, EX-GIRLFRIEND OF BOBBY CUTTS: Thank you. She sounded like she was a bit shaky and said that she doesn't know what to think anymore, either. SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: Nikki, let me go back — I want to look through this in a little more detail. And how is it possible that you weren't able to stop this, or get some assistance, legal assistance, you know, assistance from the courts or, you know, the police? And came unannounced, picked me up against my will, and put me in a neck brace.

The sheriff department sergeant's affidavit filed Sunday alleges that Cutts killed Davis and her unborn baby girl at Davis' home in North Canton, Lake Township, on June 14. Ohio law allows a murder charge against someone accused of killing a fetus that would be able to live outside the womb.
Her bond was set at 0,000 and her preliminary hearing was set for July 2 at 2 p.m. Members of Davis' family — including her mother, Patricia Porter, and sister, Whitney Davis, who clasped hands as they waited for the proceedings to begin — and members of Cutts' family were all in court for the arraignment.
Porter stood up and stared at Cutts behind the window as he was ordered held on bond. "I'm not sitting when I see Bobby Cutts," Porter told reporters after the hearing. Absolutely he saw me." She said she "almost cheered" when bond was set at million.
As the verdicts were read, Cutts remained stoic, a stark contrast to his tearful testimony on Monday.
His and Davis' families left the courthouse without comment. They had been sequestered, spending nights at a nearby hotel, cut off from exposure to the media and other potential influences.
