    Exactly... she managed to hide her pregnancy the entire time, even from family close to her, going to prom, etc... she could have easily given her up for adoption. She could have gone on with her “perfect little life” and no one would have known.

    I just stumbled on this case. A few things I'm not clear on is how they could know the baby was born alive and if they discovered solid evidence of it. If it is discovered the baby was in fact stillborn she still likely can be charged with abuse of a corpse and the like. Another thing that should be considered is that she had an eating disorder and that could have affected her pregnancy. She wasn't aware she was pregnant until she was 32 weeks along (approx. 7 months). Did they ever report the baby's birth weight or if her mother's eating disorder affected her development? One thing I don't understand is why it's been reported she was full-term (38-40 weeks) when she gave birth, but if she found out on April 26th she was approx 32 weeks and gave birth on May 6/7th then wouldn't she only be 33/34 weeks along? That's just under 8 months along and only 12 days after she found out she was pregnant.

    They found evidence that the baby was not stillborn.

    Something about the lungs shows she took a breath. I don’t know how. I’m not a dr. I don’t have a link, it’s what I heard when I worked at the county jail.

    State’s high court won’t hear appeal in baby death case


    LEBANON, Ohio
    The Ohio Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal by a former high school cheerleader charged with killing and burying her newborn baby.

    Lawyers for Brooke Skylar Richardson appealed to the high court after a lower court ruled doctors can testify in the Warren County case. Ohio's Supreme Court on Wednesday declined jurisdiction.

    I'm going to post this here, so I can shorten it later! :)

    Update: in red

    *Status Conference Hearing (@ am ET) - OH - A few hours old baby girl Annabelle “Baby Jane Doe” (May 6 or 7, 2017, Carlisle) - *Brooke 'Skylar' Richardson (18) accused/indicted on multiple felony charges including aggravated murder (special felony) involuntary manslaughter (1st degree felony), endangerment of child (3rd degree felony), tampering w/evidence (3rd degree felony), & gross abuse of corpse (5th degree felony)/allegedly killing, burning & burying her newborn baby in backyard of her Carlisle home. Free on $50K bond.
    Trial was set to begin 4/16/18 but is on hold until the 12th District Court of Appeals makes its ruling. Tentatively scheduled for 9/3/19.
    4/13/18: Defense & Pros file appeals re doctor/patient privilege.
    4/16/18 Defense filed Motion to lift home arrest.

    4/24/18: She will be allowed out of the house between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day. Authorities will continue to monitor Richardson with a GPS, random drug tests and unannounced home visits.
    8/27/18 Update: Appeals hearing set for Sept. 11.
    9/11/18 Update: According to Warren County prosecutors Richards told her doctor that she had no intention of having her baby. That came out Tuesday morning at an appeals hearing. At issue: Should the doctors of Skylar Richardson be allowed to testify at her murder trial? That’s at the heart of two appeals argued today at the 12th District Court of Appeals in Middletown. No decision made by Judge, could take months.
    10/5/18 Update: Prosecutors & defense lawyers today (10/5) argued their legal challenges to an appeals court, seeking to overturn portions of a lower court’s split ruling about medical records days before the Richardson trial had been set to start. Richardson’s defense team wanted today’s oral arguments closed to the public, but judges denied that request. The trial is on hold until the appeals court rules.
    10/22/18 Update: An appeals court ruled Monday an OB-GYN can testify at the trial of a teen mom accused of killing her newborn.
    12/5/18 Update: Defense filed a notice of appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court re doctors testifying. Status hearing set for 12/11.
    12/11/18 Update: A tentative trial date has been set for Sept. 3, 2019.

    2/21/19 Update: The Ohio Supreme Court declines to accept jurisdiction of the case and will not hear the appeal filed by the Defense team. The appeals court ruled that physician-patient privilege doesn’t apply in the case and that the teen’s conversations with two doctors should be admitted as evidence in her upcoming trial. A status conference in the case has been set for April 23.

    There would have been SO many people who would have wanted to give this child a life.

    There is NO excuse for what she did and I hope when this gets to trial the jury finds her guilty.

    Carlisle buried baby case: Attorneys again ask Ohio Supreme Court to intervene


    WARREN COUNTY —
    Attorneys for a Carlisle teen accused of killing her newborn baby girl and burying her in the backyard of her parents’ house in May 2017 are asking the state’s highest court to reconsider hearing an appeal about doctor-patient privilege.
    [.....]
    Rittgers told the Journal-News recently that the defense team could file a request for consideration by the state’s high court. On Thursday, they did just that.
    [.....]
    A status conference in the case has been set April 23 in Warren County Common Pleas Court. It is not clear if that hearing will happen.
