Closing Arguments Expected Thursday in Harris Trial
Closing Arguments Expected Thursday in Harris Trial

After the final witnesses in the Christopher Harris murder trial were presented this morning, closing arguments are planned for tomorrow.

Those closing arguments could take up to six hours before the jury begins its deliberations.  Harris is accused of killing five members of a family from the small town of Beason, beating them with a tire iron after a night of drinking and drug use.

He claims he entered the house to find a teenage boy in the act of killing his family and then killed the boy in self-defense.
