Gareth Pursehouse has been arrested and charged with the murder of Drew Carey’s ex fiancee, Dr. Amie Harwick.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, Pursehouse was arrested Wednesday on a no bail warrant and was charged with one count each of murder and first-degree residential burglary with the special circumstance allegation of lying in wait
Gareth faces either the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole, if convicted.
Amie was murdered when Pursehouse attacked her, causing her to fall from a third-story balcony in the Hollywood Hills.
Amie and Gareth are believed to have dated years ago. Harwick filed for 2 restraining orders against Pursehouse in 2011 and 2012, claiming he attacked her multiple times and even threw her out of a vehicle on the side of the freeway.
Pursehouse was initially arrested for murder Saturday afternoon, but bonded out of jail Tuesday night after being held on a $2 million bail.
