ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- A man accused of killing his wife and three children in their sport utility vehicle agreed Tuesday to be moved to Illinois to face the charges.
Christopher Vaughn consented to the transfer during an appearance in a courtroom at the St. Charles County jail.
Vaughn "is ready to go back to the state of Illinois to defend himself," defense attorney David Waltrip said.
Vaughn was being moved to jail in Will County, Ill., Tuesday night.
Vaughn, 32, of Oswego, Ill., faces eight first-degree murder counts -- two for each victim -- in the deaths of Kimberly Vaughn, 32, and their children, Abigayle, 12, Cassandra, 11, and Blake, 8. Their bodies were discovered June 14 in the parked SUV along a service road southwest of Chicago after Vaughn flagged down a motorist.
Vaughn, a computer security consultant, had superficial gunshot wounds in the leg and arm. He was arrested June 23 at a funeral home in St. Charles before a memorial service for his family.
