Meanwhile the 18 year old girl, Brooke Skylar Richardson, has reportedly pleaded not guilty through her attorney to a reckless homicide charge on Friday in Ohio city of Franklin. A report claims that the judge continued her $15,000 bond.
Opposing the stand of the girl and her attorney prosecutors claim that they have clear evidences that prove beyond doubt that the baby was ‘born alive and was not a stillborn baby’. They found the child’s remains after being tipped off by a doctor’s office, according to local paper Dayton Daily News.
Later the girl was accused of burying the baby alive. In the meantime authorities are reportedly awaiting the release of a report from the county coroner which will explain how the baby died. However, officials suspect the infant was buried alive.
Warren County prosecutor David Fornshell claims that the baby died on May 7. On the other hand, the girl has denied the charges against her, telling a municipal court in Franklin, Ohio, that she had not buried the baby alive.
Meanwhile a CBSNews report says, “Investigators believe the remains may have been buried for about 10-12 weeks…According to the criminal complaint, Richardson “did recklessly cause the death of another or the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy”…Attorney Charles Rittgers told reporters after Friday’s hearing that Richardson, a college-bound high school cheerleader, is “by all means a very good person.”
