Carlisle buried baby case: attorneys want to see interrogation room

Defense attorneys for a Carlisle teen charged with aggravated murder in the death of her infant want access to the interrogation room where she was questioned by police.  

Brooke Skylar Richardson, 18, is charged with aggravated murder and other felonies for allegedly purposely killing the baby after its birth May 6 or 7, then burning and burying the body in the backyard of her home.

On Tuesday, defense attorney Charlie M. Rittgers filed a motion requesting “… permission to go into the interview room at the Carlisle Police Department where Brooke Skylar Richardson was interviewed in order to take photographs and take measurements in the room.”  

The motion is the first indication that Richardson herself talked with police about the incident.

Richardson appeared Wednesday morning in Warren County Common Pleas Court for a pretrial hearing.  

Prosecutors and defense attorneys met in Judge Donald Oda II’s chambers for about 45 minutes before a bailiff announced there would be no hearing to put any information on the record. 

A gag order has been issued by Oda prohibiting all parties involved in the case from making public statements about the case, thus none had comment after Wednesday’s hearing.
