Article Photos: Illinois man gets life term for killing wife, kids 2/7

  FILE - In this June 15, 2007 file photo, a makeshift memorial to Kimberly Vaughn, and her three children Abigayle, 12, Cassandra, 11, and Blake, 8, is seen outside their home in Oswego, Ill. Christopher Vaughn, who was convicted in the 2007 slayings of his wife and three children, is asking for a new trial and a judge in Joliet, Ill., is expected to announce his decision Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012. His September trial overlapped with the trial of Drew Peterson, the former suburban Chicago police officer convicted of killing his third wife and whose case had been made into a TV movie. Vaughn's attorney argues that part of the reason his client didn't get a fair trial was because the press conferences held by Peterson's lawyers outside the courthouse damaged his own credibility as a defense attorney.
