Casey Anthony Verdict
July 3, 2011 by USA Post
Casey Anthony Verdict, Closing arguments in murder trial Casey Anthony to be held on Sunday before the jury retires to consider its verdict and the fate of the child murderer of 25-year-old defendant.
The court in Orlando, Florida, was closed on Saturday and prepares prosecution and defense closing arguments. On Sunday, both parties will guard against the jury, as they present their final addresses after weeks of testimony and about 400 pieces of evidence.
The jury of seven women and five men could begin deliberations as early as Sunday afternoon and look set to continue until July 4 holiday.
Legal experts said the Orlando Sentinel’s defense attorney Jose Baez would have a difficult time reconciling the promises made Sunday during his keynote address to the reality of what his team has, or has shown during the trial.
Experts said claims that Anthony was sexually abused by her father, her daughter Caylee died in an accidental death, and that her father knew about the drowning and helped dispose of the body were tested at trial, the newspaper reported.
“There has been absolutely no evidence to support it,” said Miami-based criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor Daniel Lurvey.
“I can not get my head around what [Baez] was thinking of her closing argument has to be what should have been from the beginning. They [the state] did not prove its case beyond reasonable doubt” added.
On Friday, the trial concluded the testimony of witnesses with prosecutors in the fight against the testimony of the mother of Anthony on computer searches for “chloroform” and other terms in the home computer of the family.
John Camperlengo, general counsel for employer Gentiva Cindy Anthony, told jurors that the computer records show that a worker with your login credentials are actively working in her office during the period he claimed to have carried out house searches.
Cindy Anthony said she – and not her daughter – had made the search for information about “chloroform” and traumatic injuries, while initially looking for information about the chlorophyll in plants, bamboo and a friend’s car accident.
That testimony contradicted the prosecution’s argument that Casey had conducted the searches, according to her claim that she used chloroform to drug Caylee two years before her suffocating in 2008.
Anthony faces the death penalty if convicted of capital murder charge. She chose not to testify in her own defense.
