 The trial for Abdullah Rahman White, who faces a murder charge in the death of 28-year-old Kristie Lynne Allen, has been postponed.

White, who also faces  charges of burglary, tampering with physical evidence, receiving stolen property and complicity, was to be tried by a LaRue County jury next week.

Assistant Common-wealth Attorney Whitney Meredith, said her office will not proceed with the case until evidence is processed.

“Commonwealth is awaiting DNA test results that are crucial to the case and imperative to have for the jury trial,” said Meredith. “At this point, we do not have those DNA results back in our office.”

White, 35, of Radcliff, was seen leaving the scene of Allen’s alleged murder on Dec. 30 in a car driven by Samantha J. Kolley, 19, of Elizabethtown. Kolley faces numerous counts in the case as well.

Allen, who was house-sitting for friends in Buffalo, was asphyxiated, according to court records.

White’s pretrial conference is scheduled for Friday, according to Meredith. A new trial date has not been set.
