Suspect in Auburn killings turns self in

The man suspected of killing three people and wounding others near Auburn University could appear in court Wednesday or later this week, authorities said.

Desmonte Leonard, 22, turned himself in to U.S. marshals at the federal courthouse in Montgomery Tuesday, said Montgomery County Sheriff D.T. Marshall.

He could be returned to Auburn for his court appearance as early as Wednesday, said Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson.

Leonard faces three counts of capital murder and two counts of assault, Dawson said.
