A notice seeking the death penalty has been filed against a Kentucky man accused of raping and killing a 7-year-old girl. 

The notice was filed Friday by the commonwealth attorney for Allen County in the case against  38-year-old Timothy Madden.

He’s been charged with murder, first degree rape of a victim under 12 years of age, first degree sodomy of a victim under 12 years of age, and kidnapping in the death of Gabriella Doolin.

Doolin’s body was found on the evening of November 14 in a creek near a wooded area behind Allen County-Scottsville High School. 

Madden was being held on more than $1 million bond in Kentucky.
