Harroz, 38, had portrayed Barry Roland Titus II, 40, and eventually fell in love with him.

Cops say Harroz and Titus broke into the rural home of his ex-girlfriend Tiffany Eichor, 43, and her parents, Jack Chandler, 65, and Evelynn Kaye Chandler, 69, in September 2019.

The trio were later found riddled with bullets from two different weapons.

Now Harroz and Titus are each charged with three counts of first-degree willful and intentional murder and one count of first-degree burglary, according to court documents.

And Oklahoma wants the starry-eyed lawyer to pay the ultimate price.

Prosecutors from the New Okmulgee County District Attorney’s Office filed reasons why Harroz should receive the needle if convicted. Among them:

— Eichor’s mother suffered from ‘mental anguish’ before being shot as she watched her husband die.

– Eichor “suffered severe physical abuse, torture and pain before and during his death,” the documents say.

– The murders were part of a plot by the couple to derail the prosecution of Titus for assaulting Eichor.

Almost from the start of the investigation, Titus was a suspect.

We apologize, but this video failed to load.

CCTV footage from the crime scene reportedly shows Harroz’s vehicle stopping in front of the house at the time of the murders. A baseball cap left at the scene had Titus’ DNA.

Detectives speculated that the pair began plotting revenge against Eichor in January 2019 and even enlisted another man to plant a bomb. He later testified that Harroz was the mastermind.

His brother handed an AR15 rifle to the officers. He believed it to be one of the murder weapons and a witness confirmed that he sold the gun and another to Titus. Shells recovered from a firing range linked the weapons to the murders.
