(AP) -- The attorney for a central Illinois
man accused of killing a Beason couple and their three children admits his
client killed the family's 14-year-old son but says the teen killed the other
Attorney Dan Fultz contends Christopher
Harris walked into the family's home during Dillen Constant's killing spree.
Fultz says Harris killed Constant in self-defense.
Harris is accused along with his brother of
using a tire iron to kill Ruth and Rick Gee and three of the couple's children
in 2009. They're also charged with attempted murder for an attack on the Gees'
then 3-year-old daughter.
During a hearing Wednesday, Fultz asked a
judge for access to Constant's criminal, school and medical records.
The judge denied the request, saying it
lacked details. Fultz plans to re-file his motion.
