Harris Brothers' Attorney Requests Change of Venue

The lawyer for a central Illinois man accused of killing five members of a Beason family has asked a judge to move the trial to another county.

Attorney Dan Fultz filed a motion Monday asking the judge to move Christopher Harris' trial, which is scheduled to begin April 29.

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports Fultz said Harris can't get a fair trial in Logan County because of the sympathies residents still hold for the slain family.

Harris and his younger brother have pleaded not guilty to murder charges and the attempted murder of a child who survived.

The judge set a January 14 hearing on the attorney's motion.
