Peoria -- Interviews will enter a third day to seat a jury in the trial of a man accused of using a tire iron to beat to death a central Illinois couple and three of their children.
Attorneys started interviewing potential jurors Wednesday for the trial of Christopher Harris and have so far found eight of the 16 jurors they'll need. More interviews are expected Friday.
Harris has pleaded not guilty to the 2009 murders of 46-year-old Raymond "Rick" Gee, 39-year-old Ruth Gee and their children. Sixteen-year-old Justina Constant, 14-year-old Dillen Constant and 11-year-old Austin Gee were the young victims.
Prosecutors say Harris and his brother, Jason Harris, broke into the family's home in Beason intending to sexually assault Justina Constant and rob the family.
