Harris was arrested on March 25, 2011, in an unrelated drug case and was charged in April 2011 in the triple shooting death. He has been incarcerated at the Vermilion County Public Safety Building jail since that time.
Harris is the second man to face charges in connection with the shooting in Vermilion County Circuit Court.
The counts filed at the same time against co-defendant David Moore were dropped in November 2011 after it was determined Moore was an accomplice but not directly involved in the shootings of any of the three victims.
The incident was the first triple shooting in Danville since the 1970s
One other man has been found guilty and convicted in connection with the murders. Freddell Bryant, 35, was sentenced in U.S. District Court a little more than a year ago to three consecutive life sentences for his role in the shooting deaths.
It took a jury a little less than three hours of deliberation to arrive at the guilty verdict.
The federal grand jury indictment leveled against Bryant in summer 2011 alleged the murders were as a result of accusations about missing drugs belonging to Bryant.
According to evidence presented in the trial, Bryant used McCullough on March 24, 2007, to hold kilogram amounts of cocaine at her residence in Danville.
Bryant learned at some point later that day that multiple kilograms of the cocaine had been taken from McCullough’s residence.
The next day, according to the evidence, Bryant took McCullough to an apartment at 1707 E. Main St. to confront Pepper and Leverenz, whom he believed were involved in taking the drugs from McCullough’s home.
The charges contend Bryant brought a gun to the home and used it to shoot the three victims.
