A Central Illinois newspaper says a fund has paid more than $500,000 toward the defense of two brothers accused of killing five family members in their Central Illinois home in 2009. The Bloomington Pantagraph obtained the records through a Freedom of Information Act request. Chris Harris and Jason Harris each received more than $250,000 toward their case. The brothers are accused of murdering Ruth and Rick Gee and three of the couple’s children in Beason. The pair are also charged with attempted murder of their 3-year-old daughter, who survived the attack. Funding for the case moved from the Capital Litigation Trust Fund to Logan County when the State of Illinois abolished the death penalty.
