The man charged in the brutal murder of a young girl in Allen County was back in court Wednesday. Timothy Madden made his first court appearance since January. He is awaiting trial for kidnapping, raping, sodomizing, and murdering seven-year-old Gabbi Doolin.
During the preliminary hearing, the defense asked for more time to review evidence submitted by the prosecution. Another court date was scheduled for September 7. Outside the courtroom, Gabbi’s cousin Lori Doolin Wilson said the waiting is hard.
"We're all not happy with how slow it's going, but we understand that's the process," Wilson commented. "We just want justice served and this needs to be done correctly."
Doolin’s body was found in a creek behind Allen County-Scottsville High School last November just 30 minutes after being reported missing at a youth football game.
