PEORIA, Ill. -- After a day off, jurors returned to Peoria County court Tuesday to hear more testimony in the Christopher Harris mass murder trial.
Jurors watched an edited video of Harris' interrogation by State Police. It was conducted about two weeks after the September 2009 murders.
During the interview, Harris repeatedly denied any involvement in the Gee family killings.
Authorities pressed him for an explanation of his hand and foot prints found inside the Beason home. When investigator Michael Jennings told Harris, "We have a shoe print similar to yours," Harris said "That's impossible. I was never there, I swear to God."
Harris is on trial for the murders of Rick and Ruth Gee and their three children. He is also charged with attempted murder of a 3 year old who survived the attack.
Prosecutors expect to wrap up their testimony by the end of the week.
