He has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Keyona Deshawn Murray and her fetus. Murray was shot Feb. 16 inside a home in the 100 block of Lorenz Avenue in Dayton.

The gunfire came from outside her home while Murray was in the house with her 2-year-old child and 2-year-old nephew, police and witnesses said.

Leigh remains held in the Montgomery County Juvenile Detention Center.
