Guy Accused of Killing 7-Year-Old Enters His Plea.

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. “It is very early on in this process to discuss what the evidence may or may not be,” Lock said. “Simply put, we don’t know what the evidence is that the commonwealth believes they have. — A former construction worker charged with kidnapping and killing a 7-year-old girl pleaded not guilty Monday in a court hearing broken by the anguished sobs of the girl’s mother. Amy Gabriella Doolin’s mother, Amy Doolin, sobbed and held her hand over her mouth as a judge read the charges against 38-year-old Timothy Madden of Scottsville, Kentucky, on Monday. I do know we have the best system of justice on the planet earth.” Madden said he was at the stadium the night Gabriella was murdered but that he didn’t do it.

Timothy Madden, 38, of Scottsville, was arrested Friday by Kentucky State Police and charged with murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy in the death of Gabriella Doolin. 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.

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.

His children, from three marriages, range in age from nearly 4 months to 20 years old, she said. “There’s no way this man could have done this vicious whatever because he’s not that kind of person,” King said. “He loves his kids, he loves his family. King says her son-in-law was shooting video of the game and when he came home, “his clothes weren’t messed up,” she tells the AP. “They weren’t wet.” But a police citation states that Madden’s DNA matches that collected from the child during autopsy.

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.
