Jury says Casey Anthony not guilty of murder
The jury has rendered a verdict in the Casey Anthony Murder Trial. At 2:15 p.m., the jury in the Casey Anthony trial came to a verdict of not guilty to first degree murder, aggravated child abuse or aggravated manslaughter not-guilty. She was found guilty of providing false information to a law enforcement officer on several counts. The Jury heard six weeks of evidence and testimony in a court house in Orlando, Florida.
Casey Anthony was on trial for murdering her 2 year old daughter Caylee in 2008.
The case has taken many twists and turns, including the prosecution and defense going back and forth throughout the trial, with the judge having to speak with both sides about their behavior.
The Orlando case has generated heavy news coverage from around the country and is being referred to as “The Case of the Century.”
According to the defense, the situation, which was not immediately reported, snowballed into an out of control cover up that was filled with lies and accusations. The state maintained that Casey did, in fact, murder her daughter and has been lying to cover up her tracks.
