A man accused of attacking a family with a hammer last week in Terrytown has been charged with a fourth count of murder.

Terrance Leonard was back in court this morning for a status hearing after 14-year-old Nashawna Riley died yesterday from the injuries she suffered in that attack.

Investigators say Leonard killed his girlfriend Kristina Riley after he attacked her three children and a niece as they slept.

The only survivor from the attack is Kristina's 12-year-old daughter, who is currently in stable condition.
