Video, photos give jurors view of Auburn slaying

BY foxsports • September 30, 2014


Video and photos are giving jurors a grisly view of the shooting that killed two former Auburn University football players more than two years ago.

Lee County prosecutors played surveillance video and showed close-up photos of wounds and bodies on Monday during a second day of testimony in the trial of 24-year-old Desmonte Leonard.

The trial continues Tuesday in Opelika with more prosecution evidence.

Leonard is charged with capital murder and other crimes in a shooting that killed the two players and a third man in June 2012. Three more people were wounded.

Defense attorneys say Leonard was being attacked at a party when he fired in self-defense to save himself. They're asking jurors to find Leonard innocent.

Leonard could receive the death penalty if convicted on the capital charge.
