The 16-year-old son of serial killer Michael Gargiulo has asked jurors for mercy when they reconvene Tuesday to continue weighing the death penalty or life in prison for his dad.

“I feel like I need him,” the teen testified Thursday, according City News Service and KNBC. “I don’t want my dad to be killed.”

During his emotional turn on the witness stand, the son said he had limited memories of his father before Gargiulo’s 2008 arrest but felt it was important to have the convicted killer in his life.

“I don’t see a psychopath. I don’t see a murderer. All I see is (my) father,” he reportedly said.

Gargiulo, dubbed the “Hollywood Ripper,” was convicted in August of murdering 32-year-old mother of four Maria Bruno in 2005 and 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin on a night in 2001 when she was set to go on a date with actor Ashton Kutcher.
