Kutcher said he arrived at the Hollywood bungalow of fashion design student Ashley Ellerin on 22 February 2001, after speaking to her by phone earlier that evening to arrange a date, the Los Angeles City News Service reported.

But when he got there two hours after the call, Kutcher said he found the lights on and the door locked. Peering through the window he saw “what I thought was a red wine spilled on the carpet”.

“I didn’t really think anything of it,” Kutcher said, adding that he “figured I screwed up” by showing up late, and he assumed Ellerin had gone out with a friend, City News reported.

Ellerin, 22, was found dead at her home the next morning by a roommate. She had been stabbed 47 times, prosecutors said.

Kutcher, 41, said when he learned what had happened to Ellerin, he spoke with police and was “freaking out” because he knew his fingerprints would be on the front door of her home.

Ellerin died as the result of being stabbed 47 times according to police documents.

In 2008, Gargiulo accidentally cut himself when he allegedly attacked Michelle Murphy, KABC reported, allowing investigators to link his DNA to the killings.
