INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 4, 2013) – Three people accused in the Richmond Hill house explosion return to court Wednesday.
Prosecutors will ask for Mark Leonard, Moncy Shirley and Bob Leonard to be tried at the same time. All three face charges in connection with the Nov. 10, 2012, house explosion on the south side that killed two people and damaged or destroyed dozens of homes.
Mark Leonard and Shirley have been granted separate trials because they may have to accuse one another as part of their defense.
Prosecutors have filed for concurrent jury trials, a move that means one courtroom would hold multiple juries that would hear the cases at the same time. The juries would deliberate separately.
The defense has until the end of the month to respond.
