    Opinion:

    Justice for Gabbi taking too long


    Bowling Green Daily News

    What happened to Gabriella “Gabbi” Doolin in 2015 was and continues to be a horrible tragedy.


    For nearly three years, the Doolin family has waited for justice for Gabbi. Losing a child is something no parent should ever have to endure, especially one as young as Gabbi, who was 7 years old at the time of her death.

    Her body was found Nov. 14, 2015, in a wooded area near Allen County-Scottsville High School, where her older brother was playing in a sporting event.


    Timothy Madden, 41, is charged with murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy in Gabbi’s death.

    Since her death, Madden has had every right afforded to him under the law. The trial was postponed twice previously – once to allow Madden’s then-attorney, Travis Lock, additional time to prepare his defense, and another time after Allen County Circuit Judge Janet Crocker disqualified Lock from the case and appointed Tom Griffiths of the state Department of Public Advocacy to represent Madden, who was found indigent.

    Madden has even had his trial moved to Hardin County due to the pretrial publicity surrounding the case. That is Madden’s right as he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.


    We take extreme issue with the fact that it has been nearly three years since Gabbi was taken from her family and friends and we now learn that their family will have to wait for almost another year to seek to get justice for their beloved Gabbi.


    A Sept. 4 date for the trial, which is expected to take two weeks, has been set and Allen County Commonwealth’s Attorney Clint Willis is seeking the death penalty. Madden deserves and is entitled to his day in court in a timely manner.


    Waiting nearly four years for justice and to begin seeking some degree of closure if Madden is found guilty seems, to us, far too long for a family to wait.


    Willis hit the nail on the head when he said Gabbi’s family is ready to have a trial date firmly set after two postponements.


    “I’ve been ready for 21/2 years, we could do it (any time) from January to December. The family would prefer (a trial) sooner rather than later. Their perspective is do not move (the date), if we’re going to pick a date, put it in stone,” Willis said last week.


    We don’t believe the Doolin family or the prosecution is asking too much to have this trial as soon as possible. Gabbi Doolin was deprived of so many things in her short life. She’ll never be able to obtain a driver’s license, graduate high school and college or have her father walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. She was cheated out of that, sadly, which is all the more reason why this trial should not be taking this long to be held.


    It really is a sad day when a family still in deep grief has to wait so long for a trial date to try to get the justice they deserve and so pray for.

    New Attorney to Prosecute Madden Death Penalty Case

    By Lisa Autry
    WKU Public Radio

    This week’s election has produced a shakeup in a capital murder case in south central Kentucky.

    Nearly three years after a young Allen County girl was brutally murdered, a new prosecutor is joining the case.

    Clint Willis, the commonwealth’s attorney for Allen and Simpson counties, was defeated in Tuesday’s election by Franklin lawyer Corey Morgan.

    Willis built the case against Timothy Madden after he was charged in the November 14, 2015 death of seven-year-old Gabbi Doolin.

    Morgan has past experience as the assistant county attorney in Barren County. He currently specializes in criminal defense and says that could be advantageous in prosecuting the Madden case.

    "I think that will help me a lot, not just this case, but all all my cases because I have, in fact, defended a lot of cases in the past that are high profile," Morgan told WKU Public Radio.

    However, this is Morgan’s first death penalty case.

    The Madden case has faced multiple delays in going to trial over the past three years, but Morgan says he has every intention to get the case before a jury next fall. The trial is currently is set for September 4, 2019.

    A call placed to Willis was not returned. Morgan will be sworn into office on December 31.

    New prosecutor has first hearing in Madden murder case

    BY JUSTIN STORY
    The Bowling Green Daily News

    SCOTTSVILLE — A new team of prosecutors is involved in Timothy Madden's death penalty case, which remains on track to go to trial in September.

    Corey Morgan, the Commonwealth's Attorney for Allen and Simpson counties, took office this week, assuming control of a criminal case on the minds of many voters who helped him defeat his predecessor, Clint Willis, in the November election last year.

    Morgan and his new assistant prosecutor, Justin Crocker, appeared Friday in Allen Circuit Court for a pretrial conference in Madden's case.

    Madden is charged with murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy in connection with the death of 7-year-old Gabriella "Gabbi" Doolin, whose body was found Nov. 14, 2015 in a wooded area near Allen County-Scottsville High School.

    He faces the death penalty if convicted as charged.

    Friday's hearing produced little in the way of new developments beyond Allen Circuit Judge Janet Crocker maintaining that the trial will begin as scheduled on Sept. 4 in Hardin County.

    "Sitting here today, I don't see any reason why the case should be delayed any further," Crocker said during the hearing. "The trial has been continued twice and, barring any extraordinary circumstances, it will not be continued again."

    With Morgan taking office, both the original prosecutor and defense team in Madden's case no longer have any involvement.

    Madden is represented by a court-appointed capital defense team led by attorney Tom Griffiths of the Department of Public Advocacy, who replaced Travis Lock, a Bowling Green attorney who was ordered off the case last year by Crocker after Madden was found to be indigent and unable to afford private representation.

    Morgan said after the hearing that much of his work in preparing the case between now and September will involve responding to defense motions.

    "Any time there's a case of this magnitude, there's a lot of material to catch up on," Morgan said. "Shortly after the election, I was able to look at the file and get up to speed somewhat."

    Though he was a criminal defense attorney immediately prior to winning his election, Morgan has earlier experience prosecuting cases in the Simpson County Attorney's Office.

    This is the first death penalty case in which Morgan has been involved.

    Shortly after he defeated Willis in the election, Morgan said many voters in Allen County spoke to him about the delayed trial dates in the Madden case.

    On Friday, Morgan said he is getting to know the Doolin family as they wait for a resolution, saying after the hearing that they are "good people."

    "I've had opportunities to speak with them and I know they've had some frustrations and I think they understand that we're doing everything we can and they expect things to go smoothly," Morgan said of the Doolins.

    Three motions Lock made during his involvement with the case, including one to strike the death penalty as unconstitutional, remain pending.

    Griffiths said he would likely file supplements to those motions in the near future.

    Crocker set a March 15 deadline for the filing of any motions in the case.

    "There may be additional motions that come up as situations change, but I will try to have as many, and perhaps the lion's share, of those motions done by that date as we can," Griffiths said in court.

    A pretrial conference was set for May 3, but monthly status conferences in the case are anticipated until the trial begins.

    Killers are predators in our society , to prevent more crime ,the death penalty is necessary and must go forward on this path.
