Abdullah Rahman White was indicted by a LaRue County grand jury Monday for the murder of 28-year-old Kristie Lynne Allen.
Allen was found dead Dec. 30 inside a home in Buffalo where she had been house-sitting for friends.
White, 35, of Radcliff, was seen fleeing the house as a passenger in Allen’s car. He is accused of asphyxiating Allen and attempting to move her body from the scene.
According to Kentucky State Police, Allen’s mother went to the home to check on Allen and saw White get into the car and tell the driver to “go, go, go.”
After hearing evidence from KSP Det. Jeremy Mabe, the grand jury charged White with numerous other counts: first-degree burglary and complicity; two counts of tampering with physical evidence and complicity; receiving stolen property and complicity; and first-degree persistent felony offender.
Samantha J. Kolley, 19, of Elizabethtown, who allegedly drove Allen’s 2007 Toyota Camry from the scene, was indicted for second-degree burglary and complicity; two counts of tampering with physical evidence and complicity; receiving stolen property and complicity; and hindering prosecution or apprehension in the first degree.
White, also known as “Dullah,” previously was indicted Jan. 10 by a LaRue County grand jury on charges of second-degree burglary; theft by unlawful taking (auto) over $10,000 and complicity; and second-degree persistent felony offender.
Kolley previously was indicted on a charge of theft of auto and complicity.
Trooper Norman Chaffins indicated last month that investigators were awaiting autopsy results and toxicology reports before the death investigation was presented to the grand jury.
White and Kolley are accused of removing items valued between $500 and $10,000 from the Buffalo house. The homeowner said items included a laptop computer, televisions, clothing and an entertainment center, according to KSP.
White was previously convicted of possession of marijuana with intent to sell or distribute in Tennessee; complicity to theft by unlawful taking; two counts of complicity to unlawful transaction with a minor, second degree; and complicity to murder non-family – gun in Hardin County in 1996.
Bond for White was set at $2 million cash only.
Kolley’s bond was set at $200,000 cash only.
Both were ordered to have no contact with the victims’ families or each other.
They will be arraigned March 5 in LaRue Circuit Court.
The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and the person is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
