Prosecutors nearly immediately took her ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, into custody after the incident took place.The reason why Harwich feared for her life was because her ex showcased signs of violent behavior at a previous professional event. "And she loved me back".

Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS go inside the investigation of what happened leading up to Harwick's death, and talk with those who were closest to her in the final weeks of her life, in "The Life and Death of Amie Harwick" to be broadcast Saturday, Feb. 22 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"We'd sing the phrases in one another's ears", Carey stated.

Drew Carey and Amie Harwick confirmed their engagement back in 2018 before breaking it off shortly after.

"We'd maintain one another and dance within the kitchen to it and sluggish dance within the lavatory to it, and the workplace, front room or the place we had been".


"Amie told me after the incident that she was scared he would show up at her home".

Court documents reviewed by DailyMail.com detail how he once pushed her out of a auto on the freeway, and in another incident forced her onto the ground and viciously kicked her in the face. However, he was arrested a second time on February 19 on a no-bail warrant after charges were updated to murder and first-degree residential burglary, alongside the allegation of lying in wait. "I loved her very much", added Carey.

Harwick was previously engaged to TV star Drew Carey, and the therapist appeared in a 2015 documentary Addicted to Sexting. "I was so in love with her", he explained, going on to say that he played a set of music for her that he later played for his audience.

Carey reiterated that he still cared very deeply for Harwick, even after they ended their romantic relationship.

"All these songs were so important to us and I want to play them for you, so you can hear how much we loved each other through these songs", Carey continued.


The set of songs included Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons' "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", The "5" Royales' "Dedicated to the One I Love", Rascals' "A Girl Like You", Herman's Hermits' "I'm Into Something Good", Three Dog Night's "Old Fashioned Love Song", and The Damned's "New Rose".

"I just want to say, I'm so broken up".

'There were multiple arguments in which Gareth Pursehouse choked me, suffocated me, pushed me against walls, kicked me, dropped me to the ground with force, force-restrained me, slammed my head into the ground and punched me with a closed fist, ' she wrote in court paperwork dated June 22, 2011. According to police, inside her apartment there was evidence of a struggle and forced entry.

"She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist", he said. I am overcome with grief. She died at a hospital.

Pursehouse's attorney, public defender Patrick Hare, did not return PEOPLE's call for comment.
