Vanessa McMorick murder 4/27/2005 Euclid, OH *Ashley Berger pled guilty to manslaughter, sentenced to 5 years in prison*

remembering the victimsFrom Ashley Berger’s appeal: On April 27, 2005, Appellant Ashley Berger, who was pregnant at the time, stabbed Vanessa McMorick and her sister Christina Barkley, causing McMorick’s death and Barkley injury, while the two victims attacked Berger on the porch of her own home after McMorick threatened to “stomp or kick” Berger’s unborn child from her body. This occurred while other members of the Barkley family attacked and beat members of Berger’s family in Berger’s own front yard during a racially motivated confrontation between neighbors initiated by Barkley’s family.

At trial, Berger raised the affirmative defense of self-defense. However, the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court erroneously refused to permit testimony of McMorick’s statements threatening to “stomp or kick” Berger’s unborn child from her body. The Trial Court, on
numerous occasions in response to objection, ruled that the statements of McMorick’s threats to Berger constituted hearsay and effectively instructed the jury to disregard that testimony. The Trial Court further refused to instruct the jury that Berger had no duty to retreat from her own porch or from the defense of her family. Thereafter, Berger was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault.
