But George and Cindy Anthony DON’T want her to get the death penalty if she’s found guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee.
The Anthonys attorney Mark Lippman made the incredible confession to a reporter working for Anderson Cooper‘s CNN show AC360 on June 23.
She may be a proven liar who partied after her daughter disappeared — but that doesn’t make her a murderer, seasoned defense attorneys warn.
The prosecution amassed a mountain of evidence linking Casey Anthony to the murder of her daughter Caylee, but almost all of its circumstantial and MAY NOT be enough to convict her.
A leading botanist has testified that leaf litter found with Caylee Anthony’s remains indicate her body could have been placed there just two weeks before she was discovered.
Casey Anthony‘s defense team hopes the claims, made by foliage expert Jane Bock will help convince her murder trial jury that the 25 year old DIDN’T murder two-year-old Caylee.
Death row in Florida is so full and the execution process so expensive that Casey will die of natural causes before she reaches the front of the line!
That’s the opinion of Florida journalist Mike Thomas who’s reporting on the case for Casey Anthony‘s hometown newspaper The Orlando Sentinel.
Casey confided in a friend that she got pregnant after a one night stand, but still made her father, brother and ex-fiance take paternity tests to prove they weren’t Caylee’s biological dad!
As Casey Anthony‘s legal team resume their defense of the 25-year-old, the question remains — who is Caylee‘s dad?

After all the evidence we’ve seen against Casey Anthony, this doesn’t come as a surprise — now it’s her defense team’s turn!
Casey Anthony‘s trial continued today and Judge Belvin Perry did NOT grant the accused mother an acquittal. The judge said the state had presented “substantial, competent evidence for this jury,” which means that the trial continues when the defense attorney present their case tomorrow, Jun. 16. Much like her demeanor throughout the rest of the trial, Casey showed no reaction.
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.
As Casey’s first degree murder trial moves into its fourth week, prosecutors are wrapping up with compelling evidence.

Her murder jury was told how two-year-old Caylee’s bones had been ravaged by wild animals, after her body was dumped in woodland near the family’s Orlando home.

A specially-trained police cadaver dog detected a dead body HAD been in Casey’s car and in the play area used by her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
Handler Jason Forgery told Casey Anthony‘s murder trial he was overwhelmed by the grisly smell and his dog Gerus was instantly attracted to it when they were called to check out the car on July 17, 2008.
It’s been called garbage and human remains, but no one was sure. Now an expert on human decomposition weighs in on what really caused the ‘death’ smell in Casey’s car.
