ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — Brandon T. Morris' slide toward death row began with his birth to a teenage mother into a world of violence, sexual abuse, drugs and pervasive crime, a social worker testified at his sentencing yesterday.
Morris' half-brother Edward J. Green, 18, of Baltimore, told reporters outside the courthouse that Morris is a victim of poverty, a failed prison system and the racial divide.
Mr. Green added: "A lot of people can't understand my brother because they're not black. They haven't really been through the things he's been through."
