The Casey Anthony Trial Began May 24 2011
After 11 days of jury selection, the trial of Casey Anthony, who is charged with first-degree murder in her daughter's death, Caylee Anthony, began Tuesday morning.
If Casey Anthony is convicted she could be sentenced to death.
She is also charged with aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and providing false information to law enforcement.
Casey Anthony has always maintained that she is innocent, and that a babysitter kidnapped and killed Caylee.
There are no witnesses to the crime, but there will be a number of experts called during the trial and it is expected that evidence will rely heavily on forensics.
