Rick and Ruth Gee and three of their children were killed. A fourth was injured, but survived.
The new lawyers were appointed in response to a possible conflict of interest with one of the original defense lawyers Jay Elmore. Elmore filed a motion last month stating a serious conflict made it impossible for him to represent Harris.
