PEORIA, Ill. -- A Peoria County jury has found Christopher Harris guilty on all counts in the brutal murders of five members of the Gee family of Beason in 2009.

Rick and Ruth Gee and three of their children were found beaten to death in their Beason home in September 2009. The Gee's youngest child, Tabitha, survived the attack. She was 3 years old at the time.

Harris claimed he entered the Gee home and found Dillen Constant, 14, killing his family. He said he was forced to kill Dillen in self defense.
