HOUSTON (AP/Meredith)– A Texas woman who killed her unfaithful spouse by running him down with her automobile in a jealous rage has actually been launched from jail. Clara Harris, 60, left jail Friday after serving 15 years of a 20-year sentence in the 2002 killing of her orthodontist hubby, David Harris, in the parking lot of a suburban Houston hotel.
Harris employed a private investigator after ending up being suspicious of her spouse, who was tracked to the hotel where he was found with his receptionist-turned-mistress.
Clara Harris fought with the woman prior to striking her spouse with her Mercedes-Benz and repeatedly running over his body. The couple’s teenage child was in the automobile at the time.
Harris was convicted of murder in 2003.
The case drew extensive attention and caused a made-for-television film.
