Police say she was driven to an abandoned home at 10th and Lynn streets where she was strangled. She was then set on fire behind a home in the 1100 block of Elder Avenue.

Her family and the community have been demanding justice.

FOX59 can confirm that William Gholston has been arrested in connection with Allen's murder. DNA evidence helped track down Gholston.

According to records obtained through the Indiana Department of Correction, the suspect has been in prison a handful of times over the past 25 years.
