Trial for suspects in Indianapolis home explosion may be delayed

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trials for two of the three suspects in a deadly home explosion in Indianapolis may be delayed.

Attorneys for brothers Bob and Mark Leonard say they won't be ready for trial in June, and prosecutors agree, saying a trial in the fall would be more realistic.

The Leonards, along with Mark's former girlfriend, Monserrate Shirley, face dozens of charges, including murder and arson in connection with the deadly explosion.

Shirley's next door neighbors were killed and several homes were damaged in the 2012 explosion.

Officials say they were planning to collect insurance money.
