I'm at peace

Abdullah R. White, 38, of Radcliff, was formally sentenced Monday morning in the LaRue County Circuit Court for the 2011 murder of Kristie L. Allen.

Allen’s parents, Beverly and David Allen, stood a few feet from White to make victim impact statements. They spoke to White with tones of forgiveness and reconciliation.

“I’m at peace. I hope someday you find God,” said Beverly Allen. “You’re going to need him.”
