Brooke Skylar Richardson

Brooke Skylar Richardson was accused of burning and burying her newborn baby hours after her birth. Prosecutor David Fornshell said the baby was born alive. Richardson faced charges of aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter, endangering children, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. It is believed the motive to kill the baby was related to Richardson and her mother's obsession with 'appearances and how things appear to the outside world.' The prosecution said Richardson and her mother would not have wanted the community to know she was pregnant and had a baby. Richardson was found not guilty of all charges except abuse of a corpse.
