Ashton Kutcher Testified At The Trial Of An Alleged Serial Killer Who Is Accused Of Murdering His Girlfriend

May 29, 2019 / Posted by:

Even though he looks like he’s playing a sleazy 1980s cop who’s about to have a prosecutor dramatically accuse him of giving false testimony, stealing cocaine out of the evidence locker, and harassing a witness, Ashton Kutcher is actually in court today giving testimony in a murder trial. According to CBS LA, on Feb. 21, 2001, Ashton’s then girlfriend Ashley Ellerin was stabbed 47 times, allegedly murdered by a serial killer dubbed the “Hollywood Ripper”.

Considering the gruesome nature of the crime, Ashton looked very composed as he described going to Ashley’s house to pick her up for a date, poking his head in the window and seeing what looked like “wine stains” before leaving. I guess all those years on Punk’d have made him immune to adrenaline.

Kutcher has told police he went to pick up the fashion student-model for a post-Grammy Awards party that night, but she did not answer the door.

The 41-year-old actor said from the witness stand Wednesday that he looked into the window at Ellerin’s home and saw what he believed were wine stains before leaving, thinking the fashion design student had already gone out for the night.

Kutcher said he told detectives the next day he knew his fingerprints were on the door and he was “freaking out.”

This would have been around the time of Dude, Where’s My Car”, so picturing then Ashton freaking out over having left fingerprints at the scene of a murder is almost comical, even if the circumstances are anything but. Ashley’s alleged killer, Michael Gargiulo, is charged with (and has pleaded not guilty to) two counts of murder, and one count of attempted murder.

Michael Gargiulo, 43, an air conditioning repairman, is charged with murdering a Chicago-area teenager in 1993 and two women in the Los Angeles area in 2001 and 2005. He is also charged with stabbing a woman in Santa Monica in 2008, but she escaped and survived.

Gargiulo was a neighbor of each victim at the time of the attacks. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder and one count of attempted-murder. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Hopefully Ashton’s testimony can help put this alleged monster away forever. From the sound of this summary, there is plenty of evidence against him.

CBS LA says that after this trial is over, which could last up to 6 months, Michael is being sent to Illinois to stand trial for murder of 17-year-old Tricia Pacaccio. If guilty, may the nightmare of Ashton’s lip caterpillar haunt him for the rest of his miserable life.
