In-law: Suspect in girl’s slaying has 5 children of his own.

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A former construction worker scheduled to make his initial court appearance Monday in the murder of a 7-year-old Kentucky girl has five children of his own and is not capable of hurting someone else’s, his mother-in-law said.

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WKRN) — The wife of the man police believe raped and killed a 7-year-old girl spoke to News13’s sister station, News 2, claiming her husband is “not that kind of person.” Kentucky State Police believe Timothy Madden raped, sodomized and then strangled 7-year-old Gabbi Doolinat a little league football game. The arrest warrant said she died of manual strangulation and drowning. “In a small, rural community like ours, you read about those things happening, but you don’t ever imagine them happening in your hometown,” Allen County Judge-Executive Johnny Hobdy said Friday. A reporter asked if he had anything to say, and Madden replied, “I’m innocent.” “It’s changed everybody’s mindset,” Chris Carter, who has four children, said of Gabbi’s killing. He proclaimed his innocence in brief remarks to reporters Friday while being taken in handcuffs from a state police post to a squad car, and again in a jailhouse interview with Louisville TV station WDRB. Madden went to school with Gabbi’s father, Brian Doolin, said King, who described her son-in-law as a devoted family man who has cared for his wife since she suffered multiple strokes earlier this year.

Because the monster that done that is still loose.” On the day of the child’s funeral last week, residents lined the streets holding pink and blue balloons that they released as the hearse carrying her body drove by. Pink ribbons and balloons are still on display, including on some mailboxes near the double-wide trailer where Madden lives with his family a few miles outside of town. Gabbi, as she was called, was reported missing about 7:40 p.m. on Nov. 14 by her mother while they were at a football game at Allen County-Scottsville High School in south-central Kentucky.

Kathy Saylors, picking up her granddaughter from school Friday afternoon, said she expects more precautions to be taken for children as a result of Gabbi’s death. Her 8-year-old grandson rode the school bus with Gabbi and told Saylors he was scared after Gabbi was killed. “You take things for granted that nothing’s going to happen,” she said. “But now that it’s hit home, it’ll be different.
