BOMBSHELL: Casey Anthony did not kill daughter, it was accident.
Orlando, Florida - In the opening statement of Casey Anthony for the death penalty for killing her two year old daughter Caylee Anthony in 2008, her defense attorney Jose Baez has disclosed she drown on June 16/2008 in the backyard swimming pool.
He (Baez) claims the father was aware of the death and scolded Casey and will prove in this trial how the parents were well aware of the whole situation.
Is the jury going to believe this, since most of the evidence is circumstantial and Baez said "This is not a murder case, this is not a manslaughter case, this is an accident that snowballed out of control."
It is also alleged by the defense attorney that Casey was "taught to lie" at a very young age and was just following the teachings of her family during the outcome of this tragedy. He also alleges that Casey was "sexually abused as a child by her father George Anthony" a retired Sheriff's Deputy in Florida.
George Anthony had attempted suicide about a year after the death of his grand daughter and had never disclosed that he was aware of the child drowning in the backyard swimming pool. He is at the trial with his wife and mother of Casey but have been instructed by the trial judge not to show any emotion or they will be ejected from the courtroom. The trial is expected to last two months. The trial can be seen on HLN (Headline News), sister station of CNN or can can seen live online at WFTV and click on "Watch Casey Anthony Trial," it is not known if HLN will be carrying the whole trial or just opening statements.
