Montgomery, Ala. • A man accused of killing three people at a party near Auburn University turned himself in Tuesday after a tense manhunt that began over the weekend, a defense attorney said.
Attorney Susan James said that her office arranged for Desmonte Leonard to turn himself in at a Montgomery courthouse around 7:50 p.m. after getting word that his family wanted her help.
She said she contacted U.S. Marshals and then she and her son, who works for her as an investigator, picked up Leonard. She wouldn't say where except that it was about 50 miles from Montgomery. They drove him to meet investigators.
