(Fox News)— An Ohio woman was acquitted Thursday of charges that she killed her unwanted newborn.
The Warren County jury deliberated for four hours before acquitting 20-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson of aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment.
Richardson, a former high school cheerleader, was found guilty of abuse of a corpse and was scheduled to be sentenced Friday. That charge carries up to one year in prison, but she could get probation as a first-time offender.
Richardson faced life in prison if she had been convicted on all charges.
