Malik "King" Harris is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Rooftop". He is a suave, charismatic serial killer of young girls.

He was portrayed by Asio Highsmith.


Early Life

Harris is a sexual predator and serial killer who preys on adolescent girls, first using his charm to win their trust and then raping and murdering them.

In 1993, after being questioned about a rape but released for lack of evidence, he raped and murdered two girls. He claimed three more victims before he was hit by a car, breaking both of his legs. He was out of commission for three years while he recovered from the accident, living with his sister in Detroit.

Upon regaining the ability to walk, he resumed his killing spree after moving to New York City. He claimed to be a record producer, but this was mostly a ruse to pick up women whom he then exploited by getting them hooked on heroin and manipulating them into paying his way.


Special Victims Unit detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler investigate Harris' murder spree, at first believing it to be the work of recently paroled sex offender Leon Tate. When Harris' latest victim is found after Tate dies of a heroin overdose, however, they realize that the real killer is still at large.

Harris' murders become evermore brutal as the investigation goes on. At one point, he sets fourteen-year-old Aisha Thompson on fire after raping her, and throws her off a roof to her death. SVU detective Fin Tutuola, a family friend of Aisha's, becomes obsessed with finding her killer.

Fortunately, one of Harris' victims, who survived his assault, comes forward and tells Benson and Stabler that her rapist, who called himself "Andre", had lured her by promising to get her a record deal. This leads Tutuola and his partner, John Munch, to Harris, who denies knowing Aisha, but raises Tutuola's suspicion with his arrogance and misogynistic treatment of the woman he is currently sleeping with. Tutuola manages to persuade Assistant District Attorney Alex Cabot to get him an arrest warrant for Harris based on circumstantial evidence, and he arrests him for murder and drug possession right in the middle of a "recording session" with a teenage girl.

During interrogation, Harris refuses to donate a blood sample, claiming to be a Jehovah's Witness. He also leers at medical examiner Melinda Warner as she attempts to draw his blood. Tutuola improvises by "accidentally" breaking Harris' sunglasses, and taking them to be analyzed, the DNA from the sunglasses turns out to be a perfect match to that left at the site of Aisha's murder by her killer.

However, Harris' lawyer successfully argues in court that the police violated his privacy by taking his sunglasses without permission, although he is unable to make the drug charges go away. During Harris arraignment on the latter charges, Aisha's older brother Rodney attacks him, prompting Harris to bite him, which provides Tutuola with the DNA necessary to prove that Harris committed the murders. (It is implied that Tutuola told Rodney to attack King in order to entrap him.) Tutuola confronts Harris in jail, telling him there is enough evidence to make sure he gets the death penalty. Harris tells Tutuola that he wants to make a deal with the district attorney's office; Tutuola coldly replies that the only "deal" he will get is a free last meal. He is then presumably executed.
