The man accused of kidnapping and killing a 7-year-old Kentucky girl has pleaded not guilty.
Amy Gabriella Doolin's mother, Amy Doolin, sobbed and held her hand over her mouth as a judge read the charges against 38-year-old Timothy Madden of Scottsville on Monday. Allen County District Judge Martha Blair Harrison's voice appeared to shake with emotion as she read the counts: murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy.
The child's family sat in the second row of the courtroom and Madden's family members sat near the back. Neither family commented afterward.
Madden is being held on $1 million full cash bond. A preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 2.
Madden wore an orange jail jumpsuit and was bound at the hands and feet. His attorney, Travis Lock, said it was too early in the case to discuss any evidence.
