Timothy Madden appointed public defender; Travis Lock will assist in transition
Timothy Madden, the man charged with murder, kidnapping, rape, and sodomy in the death of Gabbi Doolin, appeared in Allen Circuit Court.
His attorney, Travis Lock, was disqualified in order for Madden to receive state funding for special services. A court-appointed public defender, Tom Griffiths, will be Madden’s defense attorney from this point forward.
Lock will no longer be on the defense team, but will assist in the transition of attorneys, per the court’s request.
“It is my strong hope that we are not starting from square one.” That’s what Judge Crocker said after recognizing Griffiths. She said she hopes to set a realistic date for the trial that has already been delayed twice.
A status hearing in the case was set for 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31.
A motion by the Commonwealth to set a trial date is scheduled to be heard at that hearing.
