DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — At the trial of a Bucks County woman accused of killing a pharmaceutical executive, the jury heard from her boyfriend - a man nicknamed “Ruthless” - who was the head of a motorcycle gang. 

Jennifer Morrisey’s boyfriend, Charles Kulow, testified Morrissey was with him the day in question, working on a motorcycle in Bensalem. That's when she got into an argument via text messages with a man who’s been described as her sugar daddy.

Kulow says the man, Michael McNew, was threatening to throw out her sister’s ashes, something that meant a lot to her.

He says he told Morrisey he didn’t think she should go, as McNew texted her saying he had a gun.

But she went anyway.

Kulow says when she came back, there was fear in her eyes and she was crying, telling him she thought she killed McNew. 

He says she told him when she got to McNew’s house, he pointed a gun at her head and asked her “where’s your boyfriend?” She knocked the gun from his hand, picked it up and pushed McNew back into his chair. 

She told Kulow that as he fell, McNew grabbed her arm and the gun went off.

He sent another man back to the scene with Morrisey to see if McNew was still alive, because, he says, sometimes a bullet could ricochet.

When asked why he didn’t call 911, Kulow said he doesn’t call police because “they’re not my friends.”

On cross-examination, Kulow testified detectives offered to help him with his sentencing on an unrelated murder charge if he testified against Morrisey, but says he refused that offer.
