He got DP. I think GGBOP posted a link earlier in the post. Here are a couple more about it. Guess he should be moved to DP - Texas. What may have confused some is that the title was that he was released early - which is correct, but that was for another crime. That's when he committed the murders.Only 7 Minutes to Convict Murderer
08 Oct 2010
HOUSTON - The crime happened two years ago, but it took a Houston jury only seven minutes to convict Garland Harper in the murder of his ex-girlfriend and her two daughters.The punishment phase of Harper's trial began on Friday morning after the conviction was handed down on Thursday.
Prosecutors say Harper previously admitted to the murders of his girlfriend, Triska Rose, and her two daughters in October 2008. The daughters were identified as 16-year-old Brianna Roberson and 7-year-old Maya Love.
According to Harris County records, Harper was previously convicted of robbery three times before being released from prison. Just eight months later, he killed the family of three.
The victims were discovered in their townhome on Turtlewood Court by a family friend who came to check on them after the mother didn’t show up for work.
Homicide investigators described the murder scene as "horrific," indicating the family was killed by some kind of sharp instrument. Strangulation may have also come into play as the daughters bodies were found partially bound.

***************Man sentenced to death for killing woman, her daughters
October 18, 2010
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A Houston jury on Monday sentenced a man who was convicted of killing a woman and her two daughters to death by lethal injection.
Garland Harper was convicted earlier this month of stabbing his girlfriend to death because he believed she was being unfaithful. He then tied up her daughters, 15-year-old Briana Roberson and 7-year-old Maya Love, and strangled them.
Jurors took just five minutes to find Harper guilty of capital murder back on October 7. And today, they decided on lethal injection as his sentence.
Harper's attorney argued he is mentally ill and was delusional during the murders.
