Man Convicted of Murder in Deadly Indiana House Explosion

A jury convicted an Indianapolis man of murder, arson and insurance fraud Tuesday for his role in a house explosion that decimated a subdivision nearly three years ago, killing a couple living in the neighborhood. Mark Leonard, 46, was found guilty of all counts against him. Prosecutors alleged Leonard was the mastermind behind the explosion, plotting with his then-live-in girlfriend Monserrate Shirley and his half brother Bob Leonard to blow up the home for $300,000 in insurance.
