Logan County Struggles To Pay For Beason Murder Trial


Faced with the possibility of enormous costs from an upcoming major murder trial, Logan County authorities are developing two budgets… one that borrows up to a million dollars through a bond sale, and another that makes cuts to the health department, paramedic funding and senior citizens programs. 

 

County board members say the trial of Christopher and Jason Harris for the murder of a Beason family could cost taxpayers up to $600,000… because the brothers are represented by public defenders. 

 

Board members favor the bond sale, which would allow the county to pay off trial costs over 20 years.  But if county residents object through a petition drive, the board could decide to go with the budget cuts instead.
