Jamestown, Ky. (WKYT) - Wendell Roberts said his family wants someone to be at every court hearing, regardless of how big or small the matter when it comes to Christopher Allman, the man charged with murdering his daughter, Sarah Hart. Roberts is a minister, but he’s also a father who says it has been difficult dealing with conflicting emotions.
“Our worlds are colliding. Because we have anger on one hand…and then we want to offer forgiveness on the other,” said Roberts after the Tuesday hearing in Russell Circuit Court
Roberts finds peace in the good that’s happened since Hart’s death. A scholarship has raised $70,000…and 3,800 shirts were sold from the Run With All Your Hart event.
“She is being remembered..everytime you turn around,” said Roberts.
Tuesday in court all the charges of rape, robbery, murder, and fetal homicide were combined into one indictment. And Allman’s attorney asked that police stop looking at her client’s mail.
“But right now he is subject to more scrutiny, he is being investigated everytime he sends a letter out. They are going straight to the prosecutor,” said Joanne Lynch, Allman’s attorney.
The judge will review the motions and make a decision in 10 days. Allman is scheduled to be back in court Oct. 23.
