Girlfriend: Harris acted normally after deaths


Peoria -- A former girlfriend of Christopher Harris says he acted normally and had only a small blister on one hand the day after the deaths of five people he is charged with killing.


Kristy Moore testified Friday that Harris said the blister came from trimming trees.


Harris is charged with beating his former in-laws to death with a tire iron in Beason on Sept. 21, 2009. Rick and Ruth Gee and three of their children were found dead in their home.


Harris' brother, Jason Harris, has said Moore is one of several women Harris tried unsuccessfully to have sex with the night the two brothers wound up at the Gees' home. Jason Harris testified his brother said he wanted to go there to "talk to" the family's 16-year-old daughter, Justina Constant.
