Accused Auburn shooter going back to crime scene

The man accused of killing three people and wounding three more in Auburn may be returning to the scene of the crime soon.

News Leader 9 has learned defense attorneys filed motions asking the judge for permission to take Desmonte Leonard to University Heights Apartments.

Attorneys hope the visit will jog Leonard's memory as they build their case. They are also asking for access to evidence and a list of witnesses interviewed about the shooting.

Leonard is charged with three counts of capital murder.
