Christopher Vaughn Still Waiting For Murder Trial

Brian Kelly

JOLIET, Il. (KMOX)-The former St. Charles, Mo. man charged with killing his wife and three children outside Chicago in June of 2007, will have to wait a little longer before going to trial.

A judge this week set a November 22 hearing date, to decide if hundreds of emails written by Kimberly Vaughn will be allowed at Christopher Vaughn’s trial.

Vaughn allegedly shot Kimberly and their 8, 11 and 12-year-old children on an I-55 frontage road. He told police his wife shot the children and herself, and wounded him.

Vaughn’s attorney is arguing that the emails paint Kimberly as a sympathetic figure, and Vaughn in a negative way.

The Vaughn’s lived in Oswego, Il. at the time of the killings.
