Today, the story of Cyntoia Brown — now Cyntoia Brown Long — will air on small screens across the U.S. in a new documentary titled Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story. The new Netflix film explores why Brown Long was put in prison for killing her abuser, and why it took so long for her release.
At only 16 years old, Brown Long was tried as an adult and given a life sentence for shooting and killing Johnny Michael Allen in self-defense. At the time of his death, Allen was an adult who solicited her for sex when she was working as a prostitute one night.

The man accused of killing sex and family therapist Amie Harwick at her Hollywood Hills home bonded out of jail Tuesday night.

Gareth Pursehouse, a 41-year-old resident of Playa del Rey and a former boyfriend of Harwick, bonded out of jail just before 10:30 p.m., according to the Sheriff’s Inmate Information Center. He was being held in lieu of $2 million bail.

Harwick, who was once engaged to “The Price is Right” host Drew Carey, had a restraining order against Pursehouse until two weeks ago, when it expired, Los Angeles police said.
