Vaughn is accused in the June 14, 2007, killings of his wife, Kimberly, and their three children -- 12-year-old Abigayle, 11-year-old Cassandra and 8-year-old Blake.
Prosecutors contend Vaughn was driving his family in their SUV when he pulled onto a frontage road and shot them near Channahon, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago.
Vaughn has pleaded not guilty and contends his wife killed the children and then herself.
