An Allen County man is under arrest for the murder of a young girl who went missing last weekend in Scottsville.
Thirty-eight-year-old Timothy Madden was arrested Friday in the death of seven-year-old Gabriella Doolin. Her parents had reported her missing at a youth football game at Allen County-Scottsville High School last Saturday night. Within a half-hour, her body was found in a creek behind the school.
During a news conference Friday at the Kentucky State Police post in Bowling Green, Trooper BJ Eaton read the list of charges against Madden.
"Mr. Madden has been charged with kidnapping, rape-1st degree, sodomy-1st degree, and murder," Eaton stated.
Police offered little information and took no questions, citing the ongoing investigation. Madden will be held in the Barren County jail.
