    George Harris says he killed a man as well, yet both for years have contended their actions were not done with the cool deliberation theoretically required to warrant a death sentence. Roll no longer can explain nor yet again ask for forgiveness. He was poisoned to death by Missouri state workers late Tuesday night, officially on Aug. 30. State officials killed Harris in the opening minutes of September 13, 2000.
