DETAILS OF RICHARD ALLEN’S ADMISSION AMONG UNSEALED DOCUMENTS. PROSECUTOR SAYS A KNIFE WAS USED IN MURDERS
Carroll County Prosecutor Nick McLeland was emphatic on June 15, the last time accused murderer Richard Allen was in a courtroom, that the 50-year-old Delphi man confessed “five or six times” since he was arrested eight months ago that he had killed teens Libby German and Abby Williams in 2017.
But McLeland stopped short of explaining the details, as Allen’s attorneys told the judge that they’d be able to put that allegation into context when the time was right.
Turns out that McLeland had already laid out that part of the state’s case against Allen, a former clerk at the local CVS pharmacy, in documents filed in April but that had remained sealed by the court.
