Defense requests to view and photograph evidence in Madden case


Attorneys for the defense and prosecution held a telephonic status hearing last week with Allen Circuit Court Judge Janet Crocker regarding the Timothy Madden case.

Madden is accused in the death of 7-year-old Gabbi Doolin.

Doolin's body was found in a creek soon after she disappeared from a youth football game at Allen County-Scottsville High School in November 2015.

Due to the amount of publicity the case has received, Madden's trial will take place in Hardin County in September rather than in Allen County.

During the telephonic status hearing, Crocker sent a scheduled transfer of the court file to Hardin County and scheduled a pretrial conference in the case for early August in Hardin County.

The judge also addressed a motion filed by the defense, which asked to view and photograph evidence being held at the Kentucky State Police's Bowling Green post.

“We did not object to the photographing of the evidence as long as a representative of the commonwealth was present with the evidence custodian and the KSP detective,” said J. Corey Morgan, commonwealth's attorney for Allen and Simpson counties, in a text message to the Glasgow Daily Times.
