SCOTTSVILLE, KY (WSMV) - Timothy Madden, the man accused of killing 7-year-old Gabbi Doolin, pleaded guilty Saturday in court.
This comes less than two weeks before Madden was supposed to stand trial on Sept. 4, according to WNKY in Bowling Green. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 23.
Doolin was with her family at a football game at Allen County-Scottsville High School on Nov. 14, 2015 before she disappeared. Shortly after, authorities found her body in a nearby creek about 400 yards from the stadium. Authorities arrested Madden, claiming DNA evidence connected him to the murder.
