• Jury finds Richardson not guilty on murder charge
• 'This was well over-charged from the get-go': Sides react to verdicts
Key during the trial was an early forensic report that said the baby’s remains were charred. The expert who made that determination later recanted the belief, but prosecutors presented an interrogation video of Richardson telling investigators she might have tried to cremate her baby.
Brooke Trial Richardson is sentenced after being convicted of abuse of a corpse.
The defense claimed the investigators were overzealous in their questioning of Richardson during that interrogation because they believed at the time the baby had been burned.
“There was no proof at all, and the prosecutors did not prove their case,” she said. “I had a difficult time as the prosecutors insisted on the (baby) burning theory. They had no proof. It was based on a false premise, and they knew it.”
Grawe said the expert corrected herself about the baby being burned, yet the prosecutors still proceeded with the case.
“I think that really hurt the prosecution, in my opinion,” she said.
Grawe said the jury worked well together.
“We did not feel the prosecution proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt,” she said. “ We were all in agreement about that.”
