I have the following qtree, and cannot figure out why the edges to the leaves start as a single edge then split into two. I am trying to make a binary tree with all the leaves aligned to the bottom, which is why I am setting the distance from root.

\tikzset{frontier/.style={distance from root=145pt}}
\Tree [.a 
                    [e f ] ] 
                    [g h ] ] ]
                        [n o ]]
                        [p q ]]]
                    [r s ]]]]
