Jonathan Richardson Case

The jury has sentenced 4-year-old Teghan Skiba’s killer, Jonathan Richardson, to death, according to WTVD.

In July 2010, Teghan Skiba was admitted to the Johnston Medical Center by then-21-year-old Jonathan Richardson after he claimed she had fallen off the bed. However, doctors found she had cuts, bruises and bite marks on her body.

Skiba died days later. An autopsy revealed that the girl died from a blow to the head.

Richardson was found guilty of first-degree murder, felony child abuse, kidnapping, and sexual offense with a child on March 25.

In her closing arguments Thursday, Johnston County District Attorney Susan Doyle told jurors that Skiba suffered unimaginable pain in her final days. She lost over 70 percent of the blood in her body from all the wounds.

“The defendant bit Teghan all over her body over 60 times and she began to slip away,” said Doyle.

Richardson declined to address the court after the death sentence was read.
