beason murders en Christopher Harris Wants New Trial <p>A central Illinois man convicted in May of beating to death five members of his ex-wife's family in their home wants a new trial. &nbsp;<br>Attorneys Daniel Fultz and Peter Naylor mailed a motion asking for a new trial for Christopher Harris last Friday. A spokeswoman for the Logan County Circuit Clerk's Office said Monday that it hasn't yet arrived. &nbsp;<br>The attorneys argue Judge Scott Drazewski denied 34-year-old Harris a fair trial by refusing to let jurors visit the home in Beason where Rick and Ruth Gee and their children died in 2009. &nbsp; Mon, 08 Jul 2013 22:25:01 +0000 Sean Crawford 5420 at Christopher Harris Wants New Trial
