Casey Anthony Defense: Will a Jury Believe Her?

by at . Comments

The State of Florida has called 30 witnesses and introduced 315 pieces of evidence against Casey Anthony, the Florida mom accused of killing her 2-year-old.

Yesterday, a judge denied a motion to dismiss the case, citing the strong evidence against her. Still, some experts say it's not an open-and-shut case.

With Casey to present her side starting today, here's a look at the case against the accused murderer of Caylee Anthony and her potential defense ...

Casey A.

The case against Casey Anthony:

  • Some of the most damning evidence came from the family computer and its search history: "how to make chloroform," "neck-breaking" and "inhalation." Chloroform residue was found in Anthony's car.
  • A Casey Anthony jail video entered into evidence not only seems to contradict a key defense claim - that Casey's father George sexually molested her - but showcases the agitated defendant acting erratically.
  • Four days after Caylee Anthony disappeared, Casey participated in a hot body contest at an Orlando club. Circumstantial, perhaps. But not good.
  • Ditto the grisly photos of Caylee's remains. Smoking gun, no. Chilling? Yes.

Casey Anthony's defense:

  • How exactly did Caylee die? No one can say for sure.
  • The state says Caylee died of poisoning by chloroform and duct tape affixed to her mouth and nose. The defense claims Caylee drowned in a freak accident, which some experts say is reasonable and there is no evidence to refute.
  • There was not as much evidence in the trunk of Casey's car as prosecutors would like. Her attorneys say that the one hair found proves little.
  • Why did Casey lie about her daughter, conjuring up a story about a nanny being last person to see Caylee alive? Because Casey was sexually abused by her dad, George, resulting in unpredictable behavior.

What do you think so far: Casey Anthony is ...

Wow what a case. I do believe she killed her daughter, but I do not believe it was on purpose or premeditated. Although anyone who drugs there child,...should know that could happen.
I have to say though....I do not believe the state proved there case beyond reasonable doubt. She should be found guilty of child neglect resulting in the death of the child an the 4 counts of lieing to the police.

i don't think that Casey killed her 2 year old child and if she did she got help from her dad.I think sh suffered enough so she does not deserve to die or go to prison but she needs to go get help but her dad deserves to serve time.who would do that to there grand daughter?put Jorge away

I hope that everyone that is so sure she is guilty never have their own run in with the legal system.They can dig up things in a person's past that can make anyone look like a psycho.I don't trust the grandfather.The anger he shows in public is guaranteed to be in the home.Everything about him screams abuser to me.He also looks like he thinks he is smarter then anyone in the room.If the grandparents are so guilty then why did they want a guarantee that they would not be prosecuted? Casey does act like anincest victim.I was raped for ten years and it has taken me at least twentyfive years to get my life together.
