People charged with capital crimes typically are held without bond, but Leonard's lawyers went to court seeking his freedom. The judge refused.
OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) -- The man charged with killing three people at a party in Auburn won't get out of jail anytime soon.
Reports say that a Lee County judge has denied bond for Desmonte Leonard, who is charged with capital murder in the slayings.
The 23-year-old Leonard has pleaded not guilty to killing three people, including two former Auburn University football players. A current Auburn player is among the three people who were hurt when gunfire broke out at a party.
Leonard is being held at the Montgomery County jail.
