Jury selection will start Tuesday in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the in-laws of the woman convicted of running over her cheating husband with a car in 2002.
Pretrial motions were to be ruled on today in the case involving Clara Harris, a 48-year-old dentist convicted in 2003 of murder after striking her husband with a Mercedes-Benz. She had found him with his mistress at a hotel.
Harris was sentenced to 20 years in prison in the death of orthodontist David L. Harris.
Gerald and Mildred Harris of Pearland filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against their daughter-in-law in 2004 - two years after their son's death. The couple, which is seeking monetary damages, had stood by her during the murder trial.
The civil lawsuit is similar to a suit the couple filed in Galveston County in 2004 and later withdrew, according to a report in Monday editions of the Houston Chronicle.
