Suspect in Triple Murder Attacked in Court

Deandra Lee is Accused of Murdering 9 Year Old Twins and their 73 Year Old Babysitter


By CBS-8 News

A judge in Hayneville ordered a 22-year-old man bound over to the grand jury on three murder charges after three men tried to attack him when he first appeared in court.
The three men threw punches at Deandra Marquis Lee as he arrived in the courtroom at the Lowndes County Courthouse Monday afternoon. No one was injured, but District Judge Adrian Johnson ordered them held 24 hours for contempt of court.
Lee is accused in the shooting deaths of 9-year-old twins Jordan and Taylor Dejerinett of Montgomery and their 73-year-old babysitter, Jack Mac Girdner of Hope Hull. Their bodies were found June 5 near Hayneville.
ABI agent Matt Bowman testified during the hearing that Girdner and the twin's mother were just friends. He said Girdner and Lee knew each other.
