Dr. Amie Harwick, Hollywood sex therapist and ex-fiance of Drew Carey, was killed at her home on Saturday, and an ex-boyfriend has been arrested in her death, officials said.

Harwick’s ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, 41, was arrested in connection with her death. She had filled a restraining order against him, but it had expired. Police said they had seen each other in the weeks leading up to her death, and Harwick had recently expressed fear of him.

Harwick, 38, was found on the ground unresponsive below her third story window. Police said her injuries were consistent with a fall. She was brought to a hospital where she later died from her injuries.
