Residents of an Ohio town are not happy after seeing Brooke Skylar Richardson, who was accused of killing her newborn baby. A new doctor reported to police when Richardson returned to refill her birth control pills. She was not known that this new doctor had been informed by her previous doctor about the pregnancy. Richardson was called, and she confessed what she had done with the infant.
Prosecutor said that Richardson’s mother was worried about her appearance and eye on her weight. They said the doctor’s office unintentionally sent her an email about the woman’s pregnancy.
Richardson’s defense team said that the child was born dead and reacted appropriately when she found out so late in the pregnancy that she was expecting. Her lawyer argued she suffered from eating disorders which affected her weight and menstrual cycle – making the clues harder to find.
The defense also said that Richardson named the child, buried her and placed flowers over the grave. Statements were followed by testimony from three witnesses, and if it is convicted, then the accused could face up to life behind bars.
