Oklahoma City Attorney And Her Client-Turned-Lover Face Death Penalty For Triple Murder
Keegan Harroz and her client-turned-lover Barry Titus II have been charged with triple murder for the deaths of the Titus’s ex-girlfriend along with the ex’s parents.
In a case where truth is stranger than fiction, Keegan Harroz, a once-respected Oklahoma defense attorney, and her client Barry Titus II allegedly murdered Titus’s ex-girlfriend and her parents. The victims were Tiffany Eichor, 43, Eichor’s mother Evelynn “Kaye” Chandler, 69, and Eichor’s father Jack Chandler, 65, reported PEOPLE.
Titus originally met Harroz when she represented him against drug and firearm charges. She defended him once again after Tiffany Eichor accused Titus of domestic abuse and of threatening her family, according to KFOR.
On Sept. 7, 2019, in what must have been a horrifying ordeal for the victims, two masked intruders, later identified as Harroz and Titus, were captured on security cameras entering the victims’ home in Beggs, Oklahoma. They allegedly kicked in the door and started shooting the victims to death.
They first shot Jack Chandler, and a horrified Evelynn Chandler tried to hide in the closet before she was shot and killed, KFOR shared. PEOPLE reported that Tiffany was chased down the hallway and shot in the back. They were all shot with different types of firearms.
Police gathered much evidence. Titus’s DNA was found on a ball cap found near the victims’ residence. Harroz’s vehicle was seen of surveillance footage at the home. About a week after the murders, on Sept. 13, 2019, Harroz’s brother turned in an AR-15 rifle to the police because he believed it was involved in a triple homicide.
Prosecutors believe that Tiffany, who had met Titus on Tinder, was killed to prevent her upcoming testimony about how he allegedly beat her and attempted to strangle her, according to PEOPLE. Her parents were likely killed because the murderers didn’t want to leave witnesses when killing Tiffany.
Harroz, 38, and Titus, 40, both face three counts of deliberate and intentional first-degree murder and one count of first-degree burglary, according to Law & Crime. They have pleaded not guilty of the murder and burglary charges. Oklahoma is seeking the death penalty in the case for both alleged murderers.
Both alleged killers had a history of violence. Back in 2014, Harroz had been accused of domestic assault against her then-husband. Titus had been arrested for domestic assault and battery against Eichor in 2018.
Tiffany Eichor is remembered as a fun-loving person who loved her Star Wars R2-D2 slippers. Her former colleague Debbie Deery told PEOPLE, “She was just a good person. Not a mean bone in her body. Everybody liked her.” Tiffany’s parents, Jack and Evelynn “Kaye”, were married for a long time and enjoyed going on yearly cruises together.
Harroz and Titus are behind bars, and their death penalty trial is expected in later 2024.
