An Ohio cheerleader has found herself in hot water after she killed her newborn baby and then burying the child in the backyard.
Brooke Skylar Richardson has been charged with the reckless homicide of her baby. According to reports from Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell, the infant was “born alive and was not a stillborn baby.”

The eighteen year old was considered a “good girl” by those who know her and they seem shocked to know she was capable of murdering her child.
Fox News reports:
The newborn’s remains were discovered last week in the backyard of her Carlisle, Ohio, home, reports the Dayton Daily News.
The baby’s remains were reportedly discovered because of a tip from a doctor’s office.
The prosecutor’s office is reportedly still waiting on the coroner to determine the baby’s official cause of death.
Richardson pleaded not guilty to the charges on Friday.
Her attorney, Charles Rittgers, told reporters on Friday that Richardson is a “good student” who graduated high school recently, where she was a member of the school’s cheerleading squad.
Rittgers said that “She didn’t drink. She wasn’t a partier or smoker,” he continued, “By all measures, a very good girl who helped children… She’s by all means a very good person.”
She’s not a good person, obviously. She murdered her child and buried the baby in her backyard. She though she could get away with it too. She deserves to be convicted!
What? If any cheerleader kills a baby they are a bad role model in society which is the opposite of what cheerleaders represent – NOT “good”

Her hearing is set for August 1, 2017. If she is found guilty, she could be facing up to five years in the slammer. If you ask me though, she deserves every second of it.
