Teen Gets Parole in 2010 Slaying of Garland Couple

A Garland teenager sentenced to 28 years for the 2010 slaying of two of his girlfriend's relatives will be paroled.

A juvenile court judge on Wednesday ordered the teen to spend up to a year in a halfway house. The boy pleaded guilty to capital murder. He turns 19 next month and will be on parole until 2038.

Garland police said the then-13-year-old boy fatally shot Alan Nevil and his wife, Darlene.

His then-12-year-old girlfriend also pleaded guilty to capital murder and she was sentenced to 20 years.

Minors serve time in juvenile facilities. Their cases are reviewed when they reach legal age and could be transferred to adult prisons.

The Associated Press has not reported the relationship between the victims and the youths to protect identities of the minors.
