Casey Anthony Motion to Dismiss Case: Denied!

by at . Comments

After the prosecution rested in the Casey Anthony trial, the judge denied the defense's motion for acquittal on the Florida woman's murder charge.

Judge Belvin Perry said the state presented "substantial, competent evidence" that Anthony's daughter Caylee was slain and she was responsible.

The defense now must proceed with its case on Thursday.

Anthony faces three charges, including first-degree premeditated murder. She had no reaction in the Orlando court when the motion was denied.

Her attorney, Cheney Mason, had argued that prosecutors failed to present evidence that a murder had even occurred, premeditated or otherwise.

"There has been no evidence of premeditation," the lawyer said. "There has been a stacking of inferences. A stacking of speculation. No evidence."

"There is no evidence to suggest when she died, where she died, how she died, who if anyone was in attendance with her when she died."

The state, he added, established only that "the child is dead."

In denying the motion to toss the case, the judge begged to differ and concluded there is compelling evidence Caylee Anthony was murdered.

Her mother, while innocent until proven guilty, is on trial for a reason.

Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick argues that Caylee Anthony died as a result of "three pieces of duct tape applied to her nose and mouth, as a result of poisoning by chloroform [and] as a result of a combination of the two."

Gruesome stuff to say the least. What do you think? Casey is ...


All you cunts defending this murderer makes me sick. Why the fuck would this bitch go partying for a month when she knows her child is missing !! She knew she was dead the whole time and felt relieved caylee was out of her way and she's free to live her life now. You stupid fucks need to wake up, casey anthony is one of the worst piece of shit mothers in history. This slut must burn in hell and you cunts defending her are either delusional or you've got a severe mental problem. Casey never gave two fucks about her baby being gnawed at by wild animals, bugs etc. Lucky that dumb pricks like you are not jury members on this case because this bitch needs to die.


This scum sucking rodent bitch should fry ! Too bad she won't get the electric chair she's subhuman she doesn't deserve lethal injection its too good for her. Casey Anthony is a disgrace to the human race, everytime I see this stone faced bitch on tv I get angry. The juries had better find this monster guilty because if she walks that would be a travesty.

anyone could of done it and do you ever think that what if someone set her up, frame make look like she did it? What if one of relative did this and she took the fall -- used her as a scapegoat?'s sticky situation. Hard to say if she's guilty or not.

I just know we are not God and He knows what exactly happened to Caylee. So, it is hard to say whether if she did it or not. Yes, there's evidence, but it's not even linking to her like such as fingerprints, or whatnot. Just Caylee's body. I don't want to punish wrong person and I would feel guilty for rest of my life. So, that's one of reason why I can't be one of jurors AND not only that I'm deaf... it is more difficult to accommodate (very costly - not cheap to hire interpreters) to meet deaf needs such as interpreter, etc....


dear all the people in that court room i will not put up people lieing in the court room she is guilty for killingher daughter and that the bottmline
from beth


Crucify the cunt!


The searches of Chloroform are evidence of premeditation.


They are saying too that Casey and her mother used to fight alot, and supposedly, she would have rather see her daughter dead and end up with the grandmother. SMH. If that is true...i weep for humanity.


OMG !! are you freaking kidding me?? No evidence ??...this whole thing is a waste of tax payers money..she did it, shes guilty as sin, and needs to pay the ultimate price for it..and I pray that the jury finds her guilty and she gets the death penalty..even thats better than she deserves...hope she rots in hell !!!


so r they sayin she didnt kill her
