A judge has set a trial date next year for one of the brothers accused of killing five family members in their Beason home. The Logan County judge picked April 29, 2013, for the first-degree murder trial of Christopher Harris. Harris and his brother, Jason Harris, are accused 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, who survived. Prosecutors have said they'll bring Christopher Harris to trial first. His younger brother's trial date hasn't yet been set.
