Deceased Woman's Testimony Can Be Used In Her Murder Trial, Judge Rules

Skylar Richardson is charged with murder in the death of her newborn baby found buried in a Warren County backyard

"I think that it'therefore the first step about what her heritage should and will be".

"She was extremely frail and she was burned, but yet could very clearly articulate what happened, where she was, fear, everything that you would expect", Bowes continued.

She could barely speak but was mustered the strength to give a few scathing words, saying: 'I never knew that a human being could be so evil.

Judy Malinowski, 33, was torched by her boyfriend, Michael Slager.

However, once Malinowski died, a grand jury charged Slager on charges of murder and aggravated murder.

He could now face the death penalty if convicted.

Robert Bever pleaded guilty in 2016 and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Malinowski, 33, was hospitalised for nearly two years and underwent dozens of surgeries after she was engulfed in flames in 2015 behind a petrol station in Gahanna, a Columbus suburb.

She dropped her ears along with 2 palms at the strike, as Fox News previously reported, also has been left with deep wounds on her back and buttocks.


The judge allowed the testimony to play in court as Malinowski underwent extensive mental examination before she testified.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said despite Malinowski's suffering - having coded seven times in the hospital, enduring dozens of surgeries and her fearfulness of Slager - she was still able to tell her story. He just stood there and did nothing.

"God please, please help me", she said.

After her death, OH passed Judy's Law which added six years onto the sentence of anyone convicted of an assault which permanently maimed their victim.

Jury selection for the trial is slated to begin with July 6, as stated by the ny Daily information.

Slager's attorneys tried their best to stop the judge from allowing the recorded tape to be used as evidence in the murder trial and said prosecutors had compiled it improperly.

"She may be the only victim to testify in their own murder trial", Slager's defense attorney Mark Collins said, according to People Magazine.

Judy had given her testimony to prosecutors for the assault trial, and now the judge in the murder trial has allowed the tape to be admitted, throwing up the freaky situation in which the victim can now testify after her death.

John Kasich sign "Judy's Law", named for her mother, at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio.
