LEBANON, Ohio — The trial of an 18-year-old mother charged with murder in the death of her newborn baby is scheduled to begin in November.
Brooke Skylar Richardson, of Carlisle, is accused of burning and burying her newborn baby hours after her birth. Prosecutor David Fornshell said the baby was born alive. Richardson faces charges of aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter, endangering children, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.
In a pre-trial hearing Tuesday, Richardson’s trial was scheduled to begin Nov. 6. Until then, Richardson is on house arrest with an ankle GPS monitor.
Richardson was given a $50,000 bond and house arrest, which was criticized as “too lax” by community members and some legal experts.
