Bond is set at $15,000 for a Rapid City man accused of drugging his girlfriend to kill her unborn child.
Alfredo Vargas, 35, is charged with attempted fetal homicide or an alternative charge of procurement of abortion.
Previous charges against Vargas were dropped when the judge rejected a state witness.
Judge Janine Kern said she will treat the case as new - she plans to re-examine all evidence.
Vargas lives in Arizona and will be allowed to return to that state until trial as long as he doesn't violate the conditions of his bond.
