Love's Deadly Triangle: The Texas Cadet Murder (DVD title: Swearing Allegiance) is a 1997 American drama television film based on the real life murder of Adrianne Jones by Diane Zamora in Texas. The film stars Holly Marie Combs (as Zamora), David Lipper, Cassidy Rae (as Jones), Dee Wallace, Gary Grubbs, Kurt Fuller, and Joanna Garcia. The film was adapted from "The Killer Cadets", an article in Texas Monthly by Skip Hollandsworth, and aired on NBC.


The story is that of the real-life case of David Graham and Diane Zamora. It revolves around two best friends who turn out to be soul mates and who swear to stay together forever and ever, even to the point where Graham's apparently confessed infidelity leads to the couple's murder of the girl with whom he purportedly cheated.



The film was broadcast prior to trial, which raised the objections of the lawyers for the defendants, as they were concerned that it may prevent the defendants from receiving a fair trial. The parents of the victim also raised objections about the film.[1]
