    An exotic dancer who has been avoiding prosecutors may soon see a warrant demanding her testimony in the case of a man accused of killing his family.

    The Will County State's Attorney's Office has tried to serve Chrystal Miller with a subpoena at least three times, including an instance in which she asked for subpoena documents to be left with her doorman, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.

    Her testimony is wanted in the case against Christopher Vaughn, who is accused of killing his wife and three children on the side of Interstate 55 in 2007.

    Prosecutors say Vaughn visited Miller at a strip club days before the death of his wife and children, telling her he was a single man with no children.

    In a 2010 motion filed by Vaughn's former defense attorneys, Miller says Vaughn "spent large sums of money" at the club and "more or less wanted to talk to her," according to the Sun-Times.

    Prosecutors filed a motion Monday for Judge Daniel Rozak to set a recognizance bond to guarantee Miller's appearance at Vaughn's trial on Aug. 13. A hearing for the motion is set for June 13.
