A Los Angeles jury recommended the death penalty for a man dubbed “The Hollywood Ripper” after he was found guilty of two murders and attempted murder. The victims of Michael Gargiulo, 43, included 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin, who was killed on a night in 2001 when she had plans with actor Ashton Kutcher.
He testified during the trial that he arrived late for his date with Ellerin, looked into her house when there was no answer at the door, and saw what he thought were wine stains before leaving.
It took jurors less than five hours to decide in favor of recommending death over life in prison with no possibility of parole.
