CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - For the second time, the Ohio Supreme Court has declined to hear the Skylar Richardson case.

The Carlisle teen is accused of killing her newborn baby and burying it in the backyard of her parent’s house in May 2017.

The Ohio Supreme Court earlier declined jurisdiction in the Richardson case.

Last October, that court ruled that Richardson’s statements, reactions, and conversations during her physician appointments before and after delivering her baby can be offered at trial.

The defense team had argued that physician-client privilege is protected under law.

Richardson is charged with aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter, gross abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence and child endangering.

Richardson’s next pre-trial conference is scheduled for April 23.
