FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The suspect in the murder of Abby Williams and Libby German was virtually present in an Allen County Courthouse this afternoon.

Attorneys for Richard Allen say they received discovery from the state on Monday and are just realizing “the enormity of the case” and say they will not be ready for trial by the end of the year.

Allen was arrested late last year and charged in the 2017 deaths of Williams and German.
