Jurors in the Christopher Harris murder trial have been shown a tire iron that authorities say was used to kill five members of a Beason family in 2009.
It was among physical evidence introduced at the trial in Peoria. The tire iron was recovered from under a bridge in the town of Armington, about 25 miles away from Beason.
Jurors also saw a laptop computer that had reportedly been taken from the home of Rick and Ruth Gee after the killings. The laptop had been damaged, apparently from being run over by a vehicle.
