Two men, being held in Brazos County jail on capital murder charges in connection with the death of Tim Merka are considered "prime suspects" in an armed robbery in College Station six days earlier, detectives said.
The Trials of Danny Harris
Two of the young men accused of slaying Tim Merka of Bryan filed civil actions Wednesday in 85th District Court, seeking to save bonds set in an attempt to be released from the Brazos County jail.
District Judge W. T. McDonald Jr. issued late Thursday afternoon a gag order in the continuing investigation into the Dec. 11 murder of Tim Merka.
A district judge on Monday afternoon refused to stop Danny Ray Harris' execution, scheduled for shortly after midnight Friday.
