LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Defense attorneys are asking a judge to lift house arrest for a teen facing trial on charges she killed and buried her newborn baby near her family's southwestern Ohio home.
Attorneys for 19-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson filed a motion Monday in Warren County after a judge postponed her murder trial while a state appeals court rules on a dispute between her attorneys and prosecutors over medical testimony.
The motion says Richardson hasn't committed any infractions since being placed on house arrest last summer. Prosecutors indicated they will oppose the motion.
Richardson is accused of burying her full-term baby last July shortly after giving birth in Carlisle.
Defense attorneys argue the baby was stillborn.
