NC Mother Charged With Abuse Facing Court Date

By Erica Bustamante

A North Carolina woman charged with abuse in the death of her 4-year-old daughter is going to court.

Multiple media outlets reported that Helen Reyes of Raleigh is scheduled for a court hearing on Thursday in Johnston County. She's charged with negligent child abuse in the death of her daughter, Teghan Skiba.

Teghan died July 19 at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. Authorities say she had suffered cuts, bite marks, head trauma and sexual assault injuries.

Jonathan Douglas Richardson of Smithfield is charged with murder in Teghan's death. Teghan had been living with her mother and the 21-year-old Richardson in a barn behind the home of Richardson's grandparents.

Authorities say Reyes left her daughter in Richardson's care while she went to military training in New Mexico even though she knew of earlier abuse.
