The Logan County grand jury has indicted the two Harris brothers on multiple murder counts and has added attempted sexual assault, burglary and armed robbery to the charges against them.

According to the Grand Jury indictments unveiled Wednesday, Rick and Ruth Gee of Beason and three of their children were killed with a tire iron, and sixteen year old Justina Constant –daughter of Ruth Gee –was the target for an attempted sexual assault by Christopher Harris.

The two brothers appeared separately in Logan County court to answer the charges against them and each pleaded not guilty.

Both men could face the death penalty if convicted. The Logan County State's Attorney has not indicated if he'll seek the maximum penalty.

At the very minimum, Christopher and Jason Harris faces twenty years in prison if convicted of murder.
