LEBANON, Ohio (AP) – A doctor says a 20-year-old woman on trial for murder in southwest Ohio broke into tears when asked why she wasn’t pregnant anymore.
Dr. Casey Boyce testified Wednesday that Brooke Skylar Richardson sought a refill for birth-control pills on July 2017, less than three months after another doctor informed her she was pregnant.READ MORE: Tractor Trailer Gets Stuck On Stanwix Street
Dr. William Andrew testified earlier that Richardson became upset in April 2017 when told she was pregnant, exclaiming: “I can’t have a baby.”
Boyce testified that when she questioned Richardson about her pregnancy, she began crying and said she’d had the baby by herself and “buried it in my backyard.”READ MORE: One Person Hospitalized In Overnight Downtown Shooting
