A man who was convicted of killing five members of a central Illinois family is set to be sentenced. Christopher Harris is scheduled to be sentenced this afternoon for five counts of first-degree murder. He faces a mandatory life sentence. The 34-year-old used a tire iron to kill five members of his ex-wife's family in 2009 in Beason, Illinois. He admitted killing 14-year-old Dillen Constant, but Harris' lawyers said he only did so after the teenager killed the rest of the family. Harris was also convicted of killing Dillen's mother, his stepfather, his 16-year-old sister, and 11-year-old stepbrother. The community of Beason is about 45 miles northeast of Springfield.
