Rhonda Maloney and Jacquie Creazzo

Victims
Rhonda Maloney
Jacquie Creazzo (survived)
Jessica Arredondo (suspected, never charged)

Mr. Harlan was originally sentenced to death, however, it was overturned when it was discovered that jurors used the Bible during deliberations. They apparently forgot the phrase “separation of church and state”. The Colorado Supreme Court said:

“Jurors must deliberate in that atmosphere without the aid or distraction of extraneous texts.”

He was then sentenced to LWOP.
