FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Glenn Olvey will again recount being trapped with his family in their burning home as the final residents of the Richmond Hill neighborhood take the stand in the trial of suspect Bob Leonard, Jr.

Olvey and his family lived one house north of Monserrate Shirley. When her house exploded Nov. 10, 2012, they were trapped by the collapsing building and had to be pulled out by neighbors who rushed to help.
