New trial date set for man charged in rape, slaying of girl
SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A judge has set a new trial date for a man accused of raping and killing a 7-year-old girl in southern Kentucky.
The Daily News reports Allen County Circuit Judge Janet Crocker set a Sept. 4 trial date during a hearing Tuesday in Scottsville. The move comes after a new attorney was appointed for 41-year-old Timothy Madden, who faces charges of murder, kidnapping, rape and sodomy in the death of Gabriella “Gabbi” Doolin.
Doolin was found dead in November 2015 in a wooded area near Allen County-Scottville High School, where a youth football game involving her brother was taking place.
The trial will be held in Hardin County due to publicity surrounding the case.
