LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A grand jury has indicted 38-year-old Timothy Madden in the death of a 7-year-old Allen County girl last month. 

Madden is charged with kidnapping, murder, rape and sodomy. 

Gabbi Doolan disappeared during a Little League football game at Allen County High School on Nov. 14. Her body was found in a wooded area nearby about 30 minutes later. 

Investigators say they have DNA evidence linking Madden to the crime,

During an interview with WDRB immediately after his arrest, Madden said he has done nothing wrong

Madden's attorney, Travis Lock, says the DNA evidence does not guarantee a conviction, and claims Madden's rights were violated because he didn't have a chance to speak to an attorney before speaking with the media. 

Lock says he's in the process of gathering evidence that will help his case.

"There is surveillance video that exists that may show this defendant before and after the time period in which this crime occurred," Lock said. 

Madden's next court date was set for January.
