In 2010,  a Garland 13-year-old and his 12-year-old girlfriend were convicted for the murder of her mother, Darlene Nevil, and step-father, Alan Nevil. Both teenagers pleaded guilty to capital murder in 2011.

Darlene Nevil, 46, was shot twice in the back of the head after returning home from work on August 17, 2010. The young couple then waited for Darlene’s husband, Alan, 48, to get home and shot him five times. Alan escaped and was able to drag himself out of the house, identifying the shooters to the police before falling into a coma, dying after 16 days in it.

Alan’s 34-year-old son, Alan Nevil Jr., remembers that after arriving at the house, police ushered him into a police car.  He says he felt like police were scared he would find the criminals before they did and stated, “I see the ambulance drive off and ask ‘Who’s in there?’ Then I saw them bringing out a body bag. And they wouldn’t let me out of the car. I was going nuts.” Both teenagers were later found in a nearby apartment by police.

Police say that the girl planned both murders, lying to her boyfriend about the way she was treated at home in order to get him to help. But Alan’s family recalls him getting along fine with both his step-daughter and her boyfriend. “Dad liked him. He would fix his bike, and he fixed the fence for dad because the dog was getting out,” states Alan Neville Jr.

Alan Nevil’s childhood friend, and retired Garland police officer, Steve Frazier says,“To be honest, I don’t care how old the suspects were. They should be held accountable,” and although Alan’s family were hoping the teens would receive Texas’ maximum 40-year sentence for juveniles, during the boyfriend’s transfer hearing back in May 2016, the judge determined that he would go to a halfway house for at least six months and remain on parole, instead of being moved to prison, for the rest of his 28-year sentence. The judge also stated that the teen was to attend counseling and anger management. The girl, now 18, received a 20-year sentence, her transfer hearing will take some place around November 2016.
