Former State Attorney Rod Smith weighs in on unexpected twist in Anthony trial

By

Casey Anthony’s mother has been back on the stand today after her surprising testimony on Thursday. Yesterday she contradicted the prosecution’s theory that Casey Anthony was the one who made Internet searches on chloroform. This development does not surprise former State Attorney Rod Smith, who in the late 1990s handled the high-profile Danny Rolling student murder trials. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Luis Giraldo discusses with Smith how Cindy Anthony testifying she had run queries on chloroform while looking up information on chlorophyll , a green pigment found in plants, could create enough doubt among jury members to prevent Anthony from receiving capital punishment.
