[October 13, 2009]  Jason Lee Harris, brother to Christopher Harris and co-accused of five counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in the deaths of the Raymond "Rick" Gee family, appeared before Judge Thomas Harris on Tuesday afternoon. 

Harris' attorney, Steve Skelton, said that he was asking that the preliminary hearing for Jason be held over to Oct. 28 at 1:45 p.m., and his request was granted. 

Christopher Harris is also scheduled to appear in court Oct. 28, at 1:15 in the afternoon. 

Jason Harris arrived at the Logan County Courthouse quietly, accompanied only by Logan County Sheriff Steve Nichols and two guards. 

As he waited his turn in court, he was placed in the usual holding room, with several members of the sheriff's department as well as Lincoln city police standing watch outside. 

Several members of his family were present for the hearing. As the proceedings came to an end and Harris stood to exit, he turned to two men sitting on the far side of the room, smiled and said, "Love you guys." 

He was then escorted out of the room while city police Chief Stuart Erlenbush stood at the courtroom door, allowing no one to exit the room until Harris was out of sight.
