'Justice has been done'
Christopher Vaughn found guilty of quadruple homicide of wife, children
JOLIET, Ill. — Jurors took less than an hour Thursday afternoon to find an Oswego man guilty of four counts of first-degree murder for the June 2007 deaths of his wife and three children off a Channahon frontage road.
The verdict was delivered by a jury composed of eight men and four women about 45 minutes after they began deliberations around 3:30 p.m Thursday. The decision capped off a day of heated closing arguments for each side and nearly five full weeks of testimony.
Channahon Police Department Chief Jeff Wold, who was on duty the day of the murders, was in the courtroom for the verdict. He said it was returned about 45 minutes after the jury started deliberation and it was an outcome that he wasn't necessarily happy about, but glad to see.
