The prosecution said Richardson, then an 18-year-old Carlisle High School senior, had a sexual relationship with an older boy and became pregnant, then broke off the relationship. Nearly nine months later, Richardson learned she was pregnant but did nothing to plan for the baby and never planned to have the child. So on May 7, 2017, she delivered the infant in secret, killed her and buried her in the backyard. She told no one about her actions.

Defense attorneys said Richardson was a scared teen who delivered a stillborn daughter she named Annabelle then buried her in the yard where she could see the site from a bedroom window. She marked the grave with a pot of flowers. She did not harm her baby, but delivered the small newborn the suffered from growth restriction after a doctor said she was 32 weeks along.

The prosecution rested its case on Monday, and the defense called witnesses over two days. The defense focused on calling witnesses who spoke highly of Richardson, discussed her eating disorder that the defense claims could have affected her ability to know she was pregnant and the health of her baby, provided opinions that the baby was stillborn and claimed Richardson had a mental disorder that caused her to submit to authority figures, like police.

The Louisville man admitted to police he had it for four weeks and had purchased it on the streets of Louisville, the report said. It turns out Moore was wanted for a murder in Arkansas, and had two warrants out for him in Kentucky, police said. Moore was then arrested in the area of 28th and Chestnut streets.

Brooke “ Skylar ” Richardson , a 19-year-old cheerleader from Carlisle, Ohio, was spotted enjoying a meal at a restaurant while out on modified house arrest until her trial for murder in the May 2017 death of the baby girl Annabelle. Brooke “ Skylar ” Richardson , 19, was dining in Miamisburg, Ohio.

The prosecution, with its witnesses, presented Richardson as a girl who was so afraid of upsetting a demanding mother that she knew she couldn’t keep her baby and killed her so she didn’t have to tell her family.

Both sides focused on a second interrogation video with police on July 20, 2017, during which Richardson says the baby might have been alive when she was born and that she tried to cremate her.

The defense claimed Richardson was pressured into making false admissions.

The case was complicated because a cause of death could not be determined from the remains, and likewise a live birth could not be confirmed by examination of the remains.

The prosecution pointed to Richardson’s actions, text messages and statements to detectives as proof of the live birth. It also noted Richardson’s own actions made sure the baby could not be examined for evidence as it decomposed in the ground while she told no one.

The case took twists and turns through more than two years, including a hearing over medical records at the 12th District Court of Appeals and two requests by the defense for the Ohio Supreme Court to hear its argument.

Richardson had been free on $50,000 bond awaiting trial.
