FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Attorneys will make their final pitches to Allen County jurors Tuesday in the trial of Richmond Hill Explosion suspect Bob Leonard Jr.

Prosecutors will ask jurors to find Leonard guilty on more than 50 felony counts, including murder, in connection with the explosion. Defense attorneys are expected to argue the State failed to prove their client's involvement beyond circumstantial evidence.
