A man was convicted Thursday of murdering a prominent Hollywood sex therapist by throwing her over a balcony in the Hollywood Hills in 2020. Gareth Pursehouse, 41, was found guilty by a jury of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Amie Harwick, 38, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
On Feb. 15, 2020, Harwick was found below a third-floor balcony at her Hollywood Hills home. Harwick had "expressed fear" about Pursehouse before the fatal attack, police said. She had applied for two orders of protection against him at the time.
