HUSBAND RUN OVER

Clara Harris, left, who was convicted of killing her husband by running him over three times with her Mercedes-Benz and leaving the car parked on top of him, leaves the Harris County Criminal Justice Center with attorney George Parnham after a hearing in her case Aug. 23, 2002, in Houston. Harris is set to be released from prison.

The attorney who represented former Friendswood dentist Clara Harris in a high-profile murder trial after she ran over and killed her husband with a Mercedes-Benz sedan in the parking lot of a Nassau Bay hotel, said Tuesday he was glad she would soon be released from prison.

“My only thought is that I absolutely wish for her well-being,” said George Parnham, Harris’ defense attorney during her 2003 trial. “I am glad she is about to be out. I hope she lands on two feet.”
