Sir Mario Owens: Defense Claims Government Misconduct in Death-Penalty Case

Sir Mario Owens.
Dexter Harris has provided the police with information on so many murders committed by other people that it's hard to keep it all straight.

"It's been a long time, man," Harris grumbled on the stand, after complaining that defense attorneys had "placed my life in danger repeatedly" by forcing him to testify about his jailhouse snitching.
