Gargiulo’s trial for the two California murders and the attempted murder started on May 2 (he is being tried separately for the Illinois murder of Pacaccio). Even though there’s little DNA evidence in the three murders, the prosecution is trying to prove similarities in all the attacks, linking Gargiulo to the murders, saying he stalked and “thrill killed” his victims. The defense, however, is suggesting that due to lack of DNA evidence in the murders, it’s possible other suspects with closer relationships to the victims could be responsible for the murders. It’s Kutcher’s testimony the defense is focusing on, casting doubt on Gargiulo’s guilt for Ellerin’s murder, and thus all the murders.
