    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.

    Judge in Madden case allows defense to test evidence for DNA

    By Justin Story
    Bowling Green Daily News

    SCOTTSVILLE — Timothy Madden's defense team will be allowed to access items of evidence in order to conduct forensic testing, a judge ruled Wednesday.

    Madden, 42, of Scottsville, is charged with murder, first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy and kidnapping 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.

    Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Madden, whose case goes to trial in September.

    A teleconference was held Wednesday in Allen Circuit Court to hear a motion from Madden's attorney, Tom Griffiths of the Department of Public Advocacy, in which he requested the release of unspecified evidence for DNA testing.

    Madden's defense team has retained an independent lab based in California to conduct DNA testing and serve as an expert defense witness, court records show.

    Griffiths said Wednesday that some of the items he is seeking to have tested have not been previously sent by the Kentucky State Police to its state crime lab for forensic testing, while others have been tested.

    Allen Circuit Judge Janet Crocker granted Griffiths' motion over the objection of Allen County Commonwealth's Attorney Corey Morgan, who voiced concerns that the testing would not be completed in time for the trial, set to begin Sept. 4 in Hardin County.

    "I would want to make sure that the trial does not get continued," Morgan said in court. "This could have been done at an earlier date."

    Griffiths said he secured the services of the Serological Research Institute to conduct the testing based on assurances that it could complete the work ahead of the trial.

    "I'm told by the lab they will have everything done and everything returned to us before the start of the trial," Griffiths said.

    Griffiths' motion, filed Monday, argued that Madden's due process rights entailed having an independent lab test the evidence.

    Results of forensic testing on items sent to the KSP crime lab on behalf of the prosecution have been made available to Madden's defense team, according to court records.

    Griffiths noted in his motion that the DNA testing comprises "the key evidence for the prosecution in the case."

    "Since there is no eyewitness evidence or statements that connect the defendant to the scene, in effect the DNA evidence is the prosecution's only link between the defendant and the crime," Griffiths said in his motion. "There are questions raised by the results of the prosecution's testing, the biggest among them were the unprecedented speed of the results, the possible clash between the serological results and the DNA testing and the multiple samples taken from the defendant."

    Griffiths also noted that Madden's previous attorney, Travis Lock, did not have the evidence tested.

    Before being removed from the case, Lock had sought state funding to help mount Madden's defense and retain experts.

    Crocker last year ruled Lock could not as a private attorney access state funds for a client who could no longer afford private counsel and ordered Lock off the case.

    "Without this (testing) done the question will always linger about the veracity of the testing done in the case (by the state)," Griffiths said in his motion. "Until those doubts are banished the defense will be unable to pursue a fair trial."

    New developments made in Gabbi Doolin case as trial approaches

    Re-testing Of DNA Evidence In Doolin Case

    By Nick Beres
    NewsChannel5.com

    SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WTVF) — With the trial of Timothy Madden quickly approaching, a set of new lawyers have brought more questions about critical DNA evidence could in the rape and murder of Gabbi Doolin.

    The 7-year-old was killed nearly four years ago, but now, just months before the prime suspect, Timothy Madden, goes to trial, a heated battle is brewing over evidence.

    Gabbi disappeared during a football game at Scottsville High School in Kentucky in 2015. Her body was found just 30 minutes later in a nearby creek.

    Police arrested Madden who immediately proclaimed his innocence.

    "If they find the right person ... I will come out and will sue everybody who slandered my name and put me where I am today," said Madden from his jail cell in 2015.

    He's been locked up since the arrest, held without bond now for more than three years.

    So, why no trial yet? For one, all the lawyers have changed.

    "This case, we have a new prosecutor who took over in 2019," said legal analyst Nick Leonardo.

    Plus, Madden was just assigned a new public defender. Leonardo says the attorneys are pretty much starting from scratch.

    "Getting up to speed on a capital case like this is going to take quite some time."

    Madden's lawyer is already asking to re-test DNA evidence, which was granted by the judge.

    "In a death penalty case, they want to make sure they afford the criminally accused all the due process they possibly can," said Leonardo.

    After his arrest, Madden said he did cooperate with police.

    "I gave them my clothes that night," he said in the 2015 jailhouse interview.

    And prosecutors said DNA from Madden's pants linked him to the crime. But how much of a link?

    "Is it a 60 percent match or a 98 percent match," asked Leonardo.

    With no apparent witnesses, he said the DNA blood evidence will be crucial for arguments on both sides of the case.

    It's likely the legal battle over testing will rage right up until the trial, which for now, is scheduled to begin September 4 of this year.
