Leonard Patrick Gonzalez Murder Trial Stays in Pensacola: Accused Murderer of Byrd and Melanie Billings to Face His Peers in Pensacola

The accused murderer of Byrd and Melanie Billings in Beulah, Florida will stand trial in his own home town, and face his fellow citizens in Pensacola. The attorney of Leonard Patrick Gonzalez requested the trial be moved out of the area. That request was properly denied. Jury selection begins on October 25th.

On July 9, 2009 the Billings were found dead in their home. It was a shocking murder. They were the parents of 16 children, many with physical and mental abilities. Many were adopted. Gonzalez is believed to be the organizer and the triggerman, although it is believed he had several accomplices - all of whom are behind bars.
