SCOTTSVILLE, KY. (WBKO) - The case against Timothy Madden, the man accused of murdering seven-year-old Gabbi Doolin, is moving toward a trial date.
Friday morning Judge Janet Crocker held a status conference in the case of Madden. Though defense and prosecution were not physically present in the courtroom, the purpose of Friday's meeting was to ensure everything is on track for Madden’s trial.

August 5th, jury orientation is scheduled in Hardin County to find those who will serve on the jury during Madden’s trial.
Judge Crocker set a final pretrial conference for August 9th where defense and prosecution can address any issues before heading into trial.
