Case of teen charged with burying baby will head to trial

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - Attorneys say they are ready for trial in the case of a former high school cheerleader charged with killing and burying her newborn daughter in southwest Ohio.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports prosecutors and defense attorneys for 19-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson said Monday that the trial scheduled next Monday can proceed.

Richardson was charged with aggravated murder, evidence-tampering, corpse abuse and other counts after her baby's remains were found in July in Carlisle, a village about 40 miles (64 kilometers) north of Cincinnati. She has pleaded not guilty.

The Warren County prosecutor has alleged that Richardson buried her full-term baby outside her family's home shortly after giving birth in May.

Judge Donald Oda said Monday there have been plea discussions, but there is no offer on the table.
