PREVIEW: Richmond Hill Trial Day 4

Posted at 8:57 AM, Jan 27, 2016

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Allen County jurors will hear some of the first testimony Wednesday that a white van with two men inside drove up to Monserrate Shirley's home on Nov. 10, 2012 -- just hours before a massive explosion that killed two neighbors and damaged dozens of nearby homes.

The testimony comes on day 4 of the trial of Richmond Hill Explosion suspect Bob Leonard, Jr.

In the video player above, RTV6 Digital Producer Jordan Fischer breaks down why the white van and its appearance at her home on the day of the explosion is important to Bob Leonard's case. Click to watch.
