SCOTTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The man accused of murdering a 7-year-old Kentucky girl is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Timothy Madden, 38, was charged Friday and faces charges of kidnapping, rape, sodomy and murder in Gabriella “Gabbi” Doolin’s death.

The 7-year-old was reported missing at 7:40 p.m. Nov. 13 during a little league game at Allen County Scottsville High School and found dead at 8:05 p.m. in a small stream of water nearby.

Kentucky State Police believe Timothy Madden raped, sodomized and then strangled 7-year-old Gabbi Doolin.

Madden was there for his son, Doolin was there with her parents to cheer on her brother.

“Biological evidence,” or DNA, found on her body is what led police to Madden, the warrant states.

Jodi Madden has been married to Timothy Madden for 10 years and they have two children together.

She told WKRN there is no way he could have committed the crime.

“We know it’s not true, he’s not that kind of person,” said Madden. “He would never put his hands on a little girl and molest her.”

Madden is being held on $1 million bond in the Barren County jail. Authorities said he is being housed alone at the jail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
