Aldrick Scott Denied Bond in Cari Allen Murder Case
A Douglas County judge reportedly denied bond for Aldrick Scott, the man charged with the murder of Cari Allen.
Authorities originally charged the 47-year-old male with kidnapping which included a $10 million bond but they upgraded the charges to include first-degree murder in late December. Investigators say there’s evidence that Scott was in Allen’s house when she disappeared and allegedly placed him near the shallow grave in Topeka, Kansas, where they found Allen’s body.
They also a say gun was retrieved from Scott’s vehicle after previously finding bullet holes through a bedroom door and walls at Cari Allen’s northwest Omaha home. New information in court documents shows Allen died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Prosecutors say the trunk lining is missing from Allen’s car and shovels were missing from her garage. Friends of hers told detectives that the couple had broken up two weeks prior to her disappearance, but that Aldrick Scott would frequently text her and show up unannounced. The prosecutor also says Aldrick Scott told a colleague that he and the victim had gotten into an argument and that she was dead.
