New details emerged about the criminal history of a man accused of killing a southern Kentucky mother.
Christopher Allman plead not guilty to murder Monday in Russell County. Police say Allman killed 31-year-old mother-of-three Sarah Hart last week while she was jogging.
Earlier in the day loved ones laid to rest the woman he's accused of killing. Dozens gathered at Freedom Christian Church to say goodbye to Hart, and some, like family friend Michael Egnew made their presence felt in court as well. "We just came down to show support for Sarah," Egnew said.
Allman said little as he appeared in the courtroom by video, and his attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
"When you look at him," Egnew noted, "he doesn't really look as bad as you might have anticipated, but I think that's what lures us all into that safety." In fact a closer look reveals a complex background.
"A search of Christopher Allman's criminal history out of Florida shows he's certainly not new to the system," WKYT's Don Evans said. Officer Don, a former Lexington detective, looked into Allman's past and found a man of many faces. "In November of 2002 he was arrested for burglary and grand motor theft auto," Evans said, "In April of 2003 he was arrested again for grand motor theft auto, and then in August of 2003, he received another charge of burglary and grand theft."
Corrections records show Allman served about nine months of a fifteen-month sentence. "He was released in September of 2004, and at that time he did list Jamestown as his home," Evans said.
From there, less is publicly known about Allman, but as the investigation continues, a growing interest in the accused killer is bound to bring more to light.
