NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The daughter of a Louisiana pastor who was killed at a revival service says that if her father could talk to his killer, he'd say, "I forgive you and I love you."
The Rev. Ronald Harris Sr. was shot to death as he preached Friday evening at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles.
Talisha Harris says the man accused of shooting her father was once a member of the church but left about four years ago.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office says Woodrow Karey, who has no known history of crime or mental troubles, called to surrender minutes after the shooting and told deputies where to find a shotgun and pistol he had left in nearby woods.
The 53-year-old Lake Charles man was jailed and charged with second-degree murder.
Talisha Harris says she can't imagine why anyone would kill her father. She says, "My dad had a big heart. He'd help anybody."
