Arrested, the man hunt is over
Auburn police chief Tommy Dawson stated, “You can run for only so long, I hope the pressure we put on helped him turn himself in.” Attorney Susan James said that her office arranged for Desmonte Leonard to turn himself in at a Montgomery courthouse after getting word that his family wanted her help. James stated that “when the full story is told, it may sound different than the perception now.” Hardly, there are three people dead and her client has a past history with firearms. Although James told the AP that the Leonard family has not formally retained her.
Leonard was charged with three counts of capital murder and three counts of assault. .
