Victim's Statements About Child Not Admissible in Beason Murder Trial


A judge has delivered a setback to the defense team for accused killer Christopher Harris, just ahead of his trial for the killings of five members of a Beason family.

 

Lawyers for Harris had wanted to bring up statements reportedly made by murder victims Rick and Ruth Gee, two years prior to the killings, raising concerns about their son Dillen and possible violent tendencies.

 

The defense claims that Dillen… not Christopher Harris… killed the couple and two other children, and that Christopher Harris then killed Dillen in self-defense.

 

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports that the judge ruled the statements had been made too far ahead of the murders to be relevant.
