Ashton Kutcher Will Face the "Hollywood Ripper" in Court Over Girlfriend's 2001 Murder

By

The night Ashley Ellerin was murdered in her Hollywood Hills home, the 22-year-old had a date scheduled with then up-and-coming That ‘70s Show actor, Ashton Kutcher. But the young woman never made it to the Grammys party the pair was supposed to attend.

Now, 18 years later, Ashton will serve as a witness for the prosecution in the trial of Michael Gargiulo, an alleged serial killer who is believed to have attacked Ashley in her home on the evening of Feb. 21, 2001.

Scroll down for more details about Ashton’s relationship with Ashley and the substantial case against Michael, who’s been dubbed the "Hollywood Ripper."

Ashton Kutcher’s testimony in the murder trial will help establish a time of death.

The father-of-two is expected to take the stand on May 29 to share what he remembers from that night. He previously told police that he went to Ashley’s home around 10:45 p.m. after numerous attempts to contact her on her cell phone.
