Ashley Ard wiki – Ashley Ard biography

Ashley Ard became ‘Alaska’s most hated woman’ after she left her newborn to die in a local park within hours of giving birth in the bathroom of her home. The terrible incident took place on October 15, 2013, at around 9:30 am. The body of the baby girl was found by a man walking his dog in a park in a sleepy suburb of Anchorage, Alaska, and then called 911.

The 24-year-old Virginia resident was charged with second-degree murder and sentenced to 99 years in prison. Eagle River members demanded death sentences for their crimes. Ashley’s husband, Kennard, who had sex with her a week before she gave birth, denied all of her knowledge about her pregnancy. During the entire legal case that was active for five years, Ashley divorced Kennard and remarried to Byron from Ohio and gave birth to another child.

Ashley Ard The brutal truth

Ashley’s legal battle is now being investigated in the new four-part BBC Three documentary series’ Accused: A Mother on Trial. It has been labeled “manipulative” by state prosecutors charged with second-degree murder charges.

Born in Portsmouth, Virginia, Ashley Ard was arrested for murdering her daughter and had no previous legal problems. He grew up in a religious family and enlisted in the army upon completing his graduation. During his time in the army, he met Kennard, who was a soldier. According to their friends and family, the couple’s relationship was unhappy and bad.

Ashley’s colleague and best friend Dee Anne stated that she had initial doubts about their relationship after Kennard claimed to have cheated on her many times. “He would call me in tears because he found clear evidence that he was cheating and he would say, ‘I’m done’, then it wouldn’t end and they would get back together … then he said, ‘I would cheat again.’ “Nobody seemed to cheat that much … He didn’t even care enough to hide it. After I got pregnant, he was very rude. I would be on the phone with him and I would take him in. In the background,” You’re fat doesn’t mean you have to eat everything in the house because you’re pregnant. ”

She married her in October 2011, although she knows Kennard is not loyal. A month later she got pregnant with her first child. At the time of Kennard’s birth, he was sent on his first mission trip to Afghanistan. Ashley admitted that Kennard ran away with a man while away from home and got pregnant again. He decided to have the boy abducted, but later decided to do so.

When Kennard returned home, he noticed a change in his behavior and suspected that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as he used to be angry and jumped into loud noises and flashing lights began to trigger him. Kennard admitted that he had slapped Ashley once, but insisted that he was violent towards him. “ He would hold me, punch me, I wouldn’t hit him because I’m not the one who hit a woman, I was up until the night of my own business, drinking, going out. I got into an argument about something and he slapped me ‘he said. It was a reflex, I slapped him on the back. We both agreed, stop being stupid, we have to move on. ”

Kennard told the police department that he was unaware that he was pregnant and claimed that he “hid her very well.” She even admitted that she had sex with her every week when she was pregnant, and when she questioned her weight gain she said it was caused by fibroids. Ashley’s attorney Rex Lamont-Butler believes he was not guilty of the murder and finds it ‘crazy’ that Kennard had regular sex with him and was not aware that he was pregnant.


The state offered to reduce the crime to aggravated manslaughter if Ashley pleaded guilty, which means immediate return to prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison.
