The trial of accused serial killer Michael Gargiulo began in Los Angeles on Thursday, as lawyers for the prosecution and the defense framed their arguments in the case of the so-called "Hollywood Ripper".

"What you will hear is that Michael Gargiulo for nearly 15 years was watching, always watching", prosecutor Daniel Akemon said during opening statements about the crimes.

"He collected real-time intelligence on the victims and then manipulated the circumstances to provide himself with the ideal opportunity to pounce and kill in blitz-type knife attacks", said deputy district attorney Daniel Akemon. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Superior Courts commented earlier this week that Kutcher is "expected to testify" in order to help establish a timeline in the 2001 murder of 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin, who Kutcher had only been dating a short time before she was killed. He was separately charged with killing an 18-year-old Glenview, Illinois, woman whose father found her fatally stabbed on their family's doorstep, house key still in hand.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Gargiulo's attorney, Daniel Nardoni, reminded jurors during his opening statement that his client is presumed innocent and said other men had better access or motive in the killings.

Gargiulo's trial is expected to take six months.

When she didn't show up, Kutcher went to Ellerin's home and peered inside.

According to court documents, Gargiulo, 43, has been charged with the murders of Ashley Ellerin and Maria Bruno, in addition to the attempted murder of Michelle Murphy in 2008.

Gargiulo is accused of murdering Ashley Ellerin the night of February 21, 2001, court documents said. Kutcher left, not thinking anything was wrong, and Ellerin's body was found the next day by a friend. Gargiulo was a friend of her brother's and 17 at the time Pacaccio was stabbed to death on her front porch. One victim survived a stabbing attack in her Santa Monica apartment in 2008. Her breasts had been cut off.

After Gargiulo moved to Los Angeles, police say the former handyman and boxer found new victims.

On Thursday, the That 70s Show star learned that he could be called to the stand to testify after he was named on a list of 200 potential witnesses in the trial. They say in 1993, Gargiulo killed his neighbor while living in IL. Gargiulo was later arrested after prosecutors say his DNA was found at the scene.
