The country is divided! If you’ve been following this intense trial, then VOTE below! Guilty or not?
The Casey Anthony murder trial is still shrouded in mystery over what really happened to her two-year-old daughter, Caylee. Since the trial first began in May, nearly 100 individuals have testified and more than 400 pieces of evidence have been presented to the jury.
The prosecution claims Anthony used chloroform to subdue her daughter and then smothered her with duct tape. They say she hid Caylee’s body in the trunk of her car for several days until it began to decompose and smell. Then she dumped it in a swampy wooded area near the Anthony family home. The toddler’s remains were found in December of 2008, nearly six months after she disappeared.
The defense claims Caylee accidentally drowned in the family’s swimming pool, and that Casey’s dad, ex-cop George Anthony, panicked and decided to make it look like a homicide by taping her mouth and dumping the body in the woods.
George Anthony denies any knowledge of how his granddaughter died, or that he played any part in a cover up.
The 25-year-old is charged with murder in the first-degree, second-degree murder, manslaughter, third-degree felony murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child, aggravated child abuse and four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
The trial is now in the hands of 12 jurors. If convicted of first-degree murder, she could face the death penalty.
