KENTON COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Bond is set at more than $2 million for a man accused is of leading police on a chase that killed two people in Cincinnati.

39 year-old Mark Gerth is facing two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of aggravated vehicular assault.

On Wednesday morning, March 16, Gerth allegedly led Cincinnati police on a high-speed chase in a stolen SUV, the crash ended when he smashed into one car and then plowed into a taxi.

The driver of the cab, Mohamed Sidi, and his passenger died. Gerth has been charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, and one count of aggravated vehicular assault.

"They stole my husband and another lady's life." said the widow of the cab driver, Kathy Sidi.

She was worried about him working late nights, but never thought he would be killed in a car crash.

WAVE News has learned that Gerth has been in trouble with the law before. The Kenton County Commonwealth attorney Gerth was released from prison after serving a few years of his 10 year sentence for burglary, in 2002.

Gerth was arrested again after his release, but got out of prison again in 2010.
