Beason trial calls for violence expert to testify


Beason – Attorneys for the accused in a high profile Beason murder case are asking for a video game violence expert to testify.


Defense Attorneys say Christopher Harris walked in on 14 year old Dillen constant killing his family, so in turn Harris killed constant in self defense. The defense will have an Iowa State University violence expert testify about constant's mind, that the defense says was prone to violence.


Ruth and Rick Gee, and three of their children were found beaten to death in their home, in September of 2009. Christopher Harris' trial is scheduled to begin in April in Peoria County.
