Judge in Delphi Murders Case Faces Allegations of Withholding Case Records

Judge Francis Gull, presiding over the Delphi murders case, is defending herself against allegations that she improperly withheld important case records from the public. Attorneys for Richard Allen, the defendant in the case, have filed a 20-page response to the Indiana Supreme Court, claiming that Judge Gull has not released over 100 court documents related to the Delphi murders on the state public access website.

In response to the allegations, Judge Gull stated that she had already ordered nearly all the records to be posted in the electronic case file, which is available to the public. Today, some court documents dating back to June in the Delphi case became available for the first time.

Among the newly released documents are letters written by an inmate at the Westville Correctional Facility, who claims to have been housed in a cell above Richard Allen. The inmate alleges witnessing Allen being abused and mistreated by correctional officials. This inmate was scheduled to testify at a hearing in June but refused to come out of his cell and travel to Carroll County, fearing mistreatment if he testified.

Richard Allen is currently charged with the 2017 killings of Abby Williams and Libby German. His trial is scheduled for October.
