Christopher Vaughn Trial: Day 15

• Forensic consultant Matthew Noedel analyzed for jurors the evidence about gunshots fired in Christopher Vaughn’s SUV when his wife and children were fatally shot and he was wounded. Noedel said the evidence did not match Vaughn’s story that his wife shot him before killing her children and then herself.

• Pam Glueck of Navigant Consulting of Chicago, Vaughn’s former employer, said Vaughn logged as vacation time an alleged May 2007 trip to Canada to scout potential places to disappear into the Yukon wilderness.

• Mary Halvorson, a legal analyst for Ameriprise Financial Bank, said Vaughn signed paperwork to collect on his wife’s $1 million life insurance policy eight days after his family was killed.

TUESDAY: Noedel’s testimony is expected to continue.
