Teen’s murder trial delayed

August 18, 2010

The trial for a Kosciusko County teenager accused of raping and killing a 14-year-old Whitley County girl has been postponed until January.

Joshua M. Wright of northeastern Kosciusko County will now face his trial Jan. 25 for the death of Kaylin Doggendorf of northwestern rural Whitley County. Wright faces charges of murder, rape, burglary and removal of a body from the scene of a crime in the March 18 death of Doggendorf.

Wright was scheduled to go to trial in September, but more psychological evaluations need to be completed and the trial date was postponed.

According to the affidavit, Wright allegedly broke into Doggendorf’s parents’ basement to get to her bedroom and then raped her and killed her. Doggendorf died from asphyxia due to strangulation and suffocation, according to the autopsy report. In mid-June, the Whitley County Prosecutor’s Office filed a notice that life without parole may be sought in the case.
