Casey Anthony Trial Updates, Jurors in the trial of Casey Anthony finished her first day of deliberations Monday without a verdict that will decide the fate of the Florida woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Anthony is accused of first-degree murder of her daughter and could face the death penalty if convicted. He sat stone-faced as the judge instructed the jury.
They will resume deliberations at 8:30 am Tuesday. On Monday, Judge Belvin Perry instructed the jury how to proceed in its deliberations. He gave jurors the option of finding guilty of a misdemeanor, as the second-degree murder, manslaughter or third-degree felony murder. These crimes do not have a death sentence.
Along with the charge of first-degree murder, Anthony faces charges of aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter and four counts of lying to police.
Closing arguments ended Monday with prosecutors telling jurors that the death of little Caylee is no mystery. Casey Anthony painted as a pathological liar, who diverted attention away from him, saying her dead daughter, Caylee, had been kidnapped.
During the State’s rebuttal closing argument the defense, the prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick played portions of the tapes of Casey Anthony Jail lie about her daughter being kidnapped by a fictional nanny and the 911 call made by the Casey Anthony’s mother, Cindy Anthony, Caylee failure to report. The tests are intended to show how Casey Anthony continued to weave a web of lies about the whereabouts of Caylee, even when given the opportunity to tell the truth to her family and authorities.
The prosecution completed its rebuttal by showing a picture of Casey Anthony party hard and the young mother tattoo on her back after the disappearance of Caylee is. The tattoo read “Bella Vita,” Italian for beautiful life.
Drane Burdick prosecutor tried to discredit the argument of defense attorney Jose Baez closing Caylee drowned in the family pool and Casey Anthony Anthony is in the 31 days that he knew her daughter had died were a strange coping mechanism.
