FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- After more than four weeks of testimony presented by the prosecution, Bob Leonard, Jr.'s, defense team will finally have the chance to make their case for why their client should be found not guilty in connection with the Richmond Hill Explosion.

Unlike at his brother's trial, Leonard's team says they do plan to call witnesses in support of their client.

It's yet to be seen whether Leonard himself will testify.
