Vaughn is accused in the June 14, 2007, slayings of his wife, Kimberly, and their three children: 12-year-old Abigayle, 11-year-old Cassandra and 8-year-old Blake.

Authorities allege Vaughn was driving his family in their SUV when he pulled onto a frontage road and shot them near Channahon.

Vaughn has pleaded not guilty. He contends his wife killed the children and then killed herself.
