A Lowndes County judge will hold a hearing to decide if there is enough evidence to ask a grand jury to indict 22-year-old Deandra Marquis Lee on murder charges.

He is accused in the shooting deaths of 9-year-old twins and their 73-year-old baby sitter.

The hearing before Lowndes County Circuit Judge Adrian Johnson at 1:30 p.m. Monday will give Lee's attorney, Jerry Thornton of Hayneville, a glimpse at the evidence against his client.

Lee is charged in the deaths of Jordan Dejerinett and his twin sister, Taylor, plus Jack Mac Girdner of Hope Hull.

Girdner was a family friend who had been watching the twins.

The bodies of the victims were found June 5 on a dirt road off Alabama 21 near Hayneville.

Lee is being held on $3 million bond.
