From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A man who was a teen-ager when he held down a Good Samaritan motorist while his brother beat the man to death urged an end to violence among today’s teen-agers just before his execution. Danny Harris, 32, was put to death by injection. His brother, Curtis, was executed 30 days earlier for the murder of 27-year-old Timothy Merka. In a final statement, Danny Harris said: “I plead with all of the teen-agers to stop the violence and to accept Jesus Christ and find victory.” Harris and his brother killed Merka after he stopped to help them.
