Resentencing today for Garleka Harrison - Tucson News Now

Woman receives lower sentence 6 years after UA roommate murder

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Garleka Harrison back in court today to try and get her life sentence reduced; she was convicted in 2007 for killing her University of Arizona roommate Mia Henderson. 

Harrison was granted a new sentencing earlier this year, after an appeals court ruled that her previous lawyer failed to properly investigate Harrison's background for evidence showing a history of child abuse and mental problems.

A judge granted her a new sentence Monday of 25 to life with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
