FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Because of the sheer size of the crime scene caused by the Richmond Hill Explosion, investigators accumulated hundreds of pieces of physical evidence as they built their case. Jurors in the trial of explosion suspect Bob Leonard, Jr., will see many of those pieces of evidence firsthand Wednesday.

In July, prosecutors dedicated more than a day and a half just to entering evidence at the trial of Leonard's half-brother, Mark Ray Leonard. They were expected to do the same this week.
