Connick says he's pursuing the death penalty.

Leonard is accused of killing 32-year-old Kristina Riley, her 14-year-old daughter, 10-year-old son and 9-year-old niece on March 6 in Terrytown.

He's also accused of attacking a 12-year-old daughter of Riley's who survived.

Authorities at the time said the children were attacked in bed as they slept and their mother was out. Then he attacked Riley when she returned.
