A northern Indiana judge has recused himself from the case of two slain teenage girls. Indiana Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathryn Dolan said Thursday the Supreme Court is in the process of appointing Allen County Superior Court Judge Fran Gull as special judge in the case after Carroll Circuit Court Judge Benjamin Diener’s recusal. Diener did not give a reason for his recusal but has said court personnel involved in the case do not feel safe. Diener’s recusal came on the same day he agreed to the transfer of Richard Allen to the Indiana Department of Corrections for safety reasons. Allen is the suspect in the 2017 killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams
Two attorneys have been appointed to represent the man accused of killing two teenage girls in northern Indiana. Online court records updated Monday show Bradley Rozzi of Logansport will be the lead attorney for Richard Matthew Allen, and Andrew Baldwin of Franklin will be co-counsel. Allen requested a public defender in a letter to Carroll Circuit Court last week, saying both he and his wife can no longer work. The 50-year-old Delphi man is charged with two counts of murder in the slayings of 14-year-old Libby German and 13-year-old Abby Williams on Feb. 13, 2017. Indiana State Police arrested Allen on Oct. 26.
An Indiana judge could rule Tuesday if sealed court documents with evidence that led to a man’s arrest in the 2017 slayings of two teenage girls will be publicly released. Richard Matthew Allen, a 50-year-old of Delphi, Indiana, was charged last month with two counts of murder in the killings of Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, but the court documents were sealed at the request of the local prosecutor. State police have revealed incremental details about the case since investigations first began, but public calls for more details have accelerated since Allen's Oct. 28 arrest on two murder counts in the killings.
