CINCINNATI -- (WXIX) -- The legal counsel for an 18-year-old mother accused of killing and burning her baby girl in her family's back yard fire pit has asked the state to share information about expert witnesses.
In court documents dated Sept. 11, the defendant, Brooke "Skylar" Richardson, asked for names of experts consulted by the state regarding this case, whether the state intends to use their opinions, as well as emails and correspondence between the state and those experts.
Her legal counsel writes that this demand is continuing in nature.
A Warren County judge issued a gag order in August after Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell confirmed the victim was a baby girl. The baby girl he said, was murdered, then burned in the family fire pit and buried in the back yard, gory details, which are tearing people in the county apart.
The baby girl was born May 5, a few hours after Richardson attended her senior prom. Richardson is accused of killing the child shortly thereafter.
