Richard M. Allen, 50, was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of murder Friday in the deaths of Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, officials said. He pleaded not guilty, prosecutors said.
Liberty’s aunt, Tara German, said she’s a regular at the CVS where Allen worked and she knew him from shopping at the store.
She recounted an exchange she had with him while she was printing photos for her niece’s funeral.
“I went into the store to print photos of Libby for the funeral, and he was the one who helped me,” German said. “I was a mess trying to get the images off my phone. Once they were printed, he looked at me and said, ‘I’m not gonna charge you for this.’”
