WILES EXECUTED
FOR KILLING BOY
South Carolina Man Takes
Full Blame for School
Youth’s Death
Columbia, S. C., March 2 (AP) —
Taking sole responsibility for the
crime, Robert H. Wiles went boldly to
his death in the electric chair today,
for kidnaping and beating to death
Hubbard H. Harris, Jr., Columbia
school boy.
The 49-year-old former mechanic
and one-time racing driver, paid the
capital penalty at the State peniten
tiary as the first streaks of gray
dawn were piercing the horizon. He
settled once and for all time any
question there might have been of
whether he “snatched and slew the
15-year-old youth single-handed” Ear
lier statements that an accomplice
did the actual killing were retracted
as Wiles sat strapped in the death
chair.
“I am guilty," he said in clear, even
tones. “I did it and I am ready to
pay for it. No one else was in it at
all.”
Wiles walked from the nearby death
cell into the electrocution room with
his countenance bright with smiles.
