Casey Anthony Verdict: Will the Jury Convict Her?

by at . Comments

Jury deliberations are underway in the Casey Anthony murder trial. Their decision is eagerly anticipated - and far more complicated than guilty or not guilty.

After receiving the case yesterday following closing arguments and a rebuttal summation by the prosecution, the jurors dissected it for about six hours.

Deliberations pick up today, with Casey's fate hinging on whether the jury finds Caylee Anthony's death was premeditated, not premeditated, or accidental.

Killer?

Prosecutors argued Monday the 25-year-old killed her two-year-old in June 2008 because the toddler interrupted her carefree partying and love life.

Defense attorneys have tried to explain away what they call circumstantial evidence (such as shady Internet searches) over the past couple of weeks.

The jury received the more than 400 pieces of evidence in the jury room that have been by both sides in the case since the trial began in late May.

After the defense rested (without Casey testifying), the prosecution responded that the notion that Caylee's death was an accident made no sense.

Anthony's attorneys say Caylee drowned in the family's pool and that Casey's father, a former police officer, decided to make the death look like a homicide and dumped the body in the woods (George Anthony denies this).

Prosecutors say no one makes an accident look like murder. Your thoughts?

 

UPDATE: The verdict is in ... and the jury found Casey Anthony not guilty.

How can anybody normal not convict Casey Anthony? She is guilty on every level. People do not lie for no reason. People lie to cover up or hide something. Casey told every lie in the book to stall for time and allow enough time to pass, for the body to decompose, and then to lie some more, to figure out a story for the smell of decomposition and Caylee's disappearance, and then lie and lie and lie to create enough time passed

Not enough evidence to convict this bitch. She murdered her own child and gets away with it....another O.J. If they let her go, she can either watch her back when she goes out or everybody in the public run for your life, lock your doors and windows and restaurant owners if you see this woman in your restaurant, please refuse her service.

I hope somebody gets the lying, murderous little pig with a blade shoved right into her ear. She's done nothing but lie and cover up throughout this whole ordeal. She doesn't deserve to live free, let alone live at all. I hope somebody kills her and I hope they do so as quickly and brutally as possible.Joe A, you too are delusional, please collect your prizes at the door as you leave.

The sad thing is they found her NOT GUILTY of murdering her child and all counts but she was found GUILTY of lying of which we already knew she was a liar so now another murder has been set free.

July 5th, 2011 9:44 AM I believe that she's not guilty. I believe this because duct tape is what they said she used to kill her daughter. They didnt find any DNA on the duct tape that linked it to Casey Anthony so that kills that argument and everybody forgets that Roy Kronk was hurting for money and thats why i believe that he held the body til their was a reward for the findind of Caylee's body. Plus i have an answer for the who did it if Casey didnt. I believe George did it bc Caylee was getting old enough to start talking and she could tell of all the times that George molested Casey and he was afraid for the truth to get out so he made it look like Casey did it when in fact he did it George Anthony is not the one on trial, Casey is. Molestation, abhorrent as it is, does not give you the right to kill your child. You can spin this case any which way. Her not reporting her OWN child for 30days and the jail house calls she made are what are going to do her in.
