Casey Anthony's Lawyers Consider Putting Her On The Stand!

Tue, June 14, 2011 3:01pm EST by 4 Comments

Her struggling defense are pondering the move in a last ditch attempt to beat a murder conviction and possible death sentence.

The accused child killer wasn’t expected to testify, for fear of worsening her hope of acquittal — but as the prosecution wraps up its strong case against her, Casey Anthony‘s attorneys are contemplating a final throw of the dice.

“I wouldn’t be shocked if Casey Anthony testified,” former prosecutor Marcellus McRae tells Reuters. “It may be the only option they have.”

The move is thought to be prompted by a barrage of evidence against the 25-year-old, as well as her inconsistent account of events following Caylee‘s disappearance.

The two-year-old wasn’t reported missing for 31 days after she disappeared in June 2008. When Casey did go to the cops, she lied, claiming the toddler was abducted by a fictional nanny called Zanny.

She later claimed Caylee accidentally drowned in the family swimming pool, but sniffer dogs found the scent of a dead body in Casey’s car and in a play area used by Caylee. When her body was found in December 2008 in woodland near the family home, it was badly decomposed, but duct tape and a heart-shaped sticker were found stuck to her skull.

Casey’s jury was also told her family computer had been used for internet searches on “neck breaking” and “how to make chloroform”. Investigators found evidence of the chemical, which can be used to knock people out, in Casey’s car.

If found guilty of first degree murder, Casey faces a possible death sentence.

WHY would anyone in their right mind believe anything coming out of her mouth!?! She bragged about being a good liar! Audio and video recording PROVE she is a pathological LIAR! If she goes on the stand, she seals the deal for the death penalty. Great defense move!

Why bother putting Casey on the stand? She has admitted to being the “best lier”, hand on the bible means nothing to her.
