Kutcher is ready to take to the witness stand to testify against the man charged with the grisly murder of the actor’s then-girlfriend, who was murdered 14 years ago. 

Michael Thomas Gargiulo stands accused of murdering three women, including 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin, on February 21, 2001.

Ahead of the trial new court documents have revealed the full horror of the killings.

Ashley, who lived just 400ft away from Gargiulo in Los Angeles, was attacked while she was showering and stabbed 47 times. 

New court documents published in the National Enquirer reveal: “He slashed Ms. Ellerin’s throat so violently [he] nearly decapitated her. 

“After she was murdered her body was left displayed in a… demeaning pose that was sexual in nature.”

Kutcher is due in court to testify in the trial of Gargiulo within the next few months, the report claims.


22-year-old Ashley Ellerin was murdered on February 21, 2001


The 36-year-old actor has rarely spoken about the death of Ellerin – but his written testimony to police reveals shocking details of what he saw on the night of the murder.

On February 21 in 2001, Kutcher had received a call from Ellerin.

The student, aspiring model and part-time Las Vegas stripper had tried to make a date with the then 23-year-old actor – but Kutcher had fatefully turned down the offer.

Ellerin was said to be playing the field, having recently broken up with her boyfriend, an acting coach.

LAPD Detective Tom Small told LA Weekly: “She had tons of boyfriends. At that time Kutcher was still coming up. “‘He hadn’t established his big-time credentials yet. They met through a mutual friend. It was a friendly thing. They went out a couple of times.”

Ellerin had also dated Pitch Black star Vin Diesel and Law And Order’s Jeremy Sisto, who reportedly flew her to a set in Toronto, where he was filming 2001’s Angel Eyes.

It was a few minutes after Durbin left, that Ellerin called Kutcher to ask him if she should go with him to his friends to watch the Grammys.

He turned her down but said instead he would later visit her at her Hollywood bungalow – just behind the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

Kutcher later told police that he tried to call Ellerin twice during the evening but she did not pick up her phone.

Kutcher drove to her apartment at 10.45pm in the hope of smoothing over what he thought was a looming argument, and found that the lights were on in her apartment and her car was parked outside.  

After knocking on the door and calling out to her with no answer, Kutcher said he looked through a window into the apartment and saw what he thought was red wine pooled on the floor.

Kutcher, already starring in That 70s Show, thought she was angry at him for not making the earlier date and left.

Unbeknown to Kutcher, Ellerin was lying dead just beyond his view from the window. The red wine he had seen pooled on the floor was her blood.

Ellerin’s body was found by her roommate, Justin Peterson.
