Tarla Grant is a character on Showtime's series DEXTER. She became the Trinity Killer's second shown victim in Season Four.

Summary

Tarla was a mother of two children and a wife. She lived in a nice suburb of Miami. Arthur Mitchell stalked her and eventually "bumped into her" at night while walking a dog he had found. The next day, Tarla was kidnapped by him and brought to the top of a building, where Arthur coerced her to jump by threatening to hurt her children. Later it was revealed that Tarla had a tumor, which led LaGuerta to close her case, believing that she had jumped on her own. Her death was later ruled a homicide when the Trinity Killer's existence was proven and the case taken over by the FBI.
