Gotta Watch: Judging Casey Anthony case

It's the capital murder case that's held our attention this summer. But has the prosecution proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Casey Anthony intentionally murdered her daughter? The jury is beginning their deliberations today, and now it's your chance to weigh in. You've gotta watch the most pivotal moments from the defense and prosecution and judge for yourself whether Casey Anthony is guilty or innocent.

Prosecuting Casey Anthony – The state of Florida contends Casey Anthony cared more about partying and having a fun life than being a mother. It's her motive for murder, according to prosecutors. They paint her as a liar trying to live the good life at the expense of her daughter.

Defending Casey Anthony – The defense brought molestation allegations against Casey Anthony's father and brother during the trial. It pointed to George Anthony as the real culprit behind the toddler's death and cover-up. Most importantly, Casey Anthony's defense team relied upon the fact that Caylee Anthony's cause of death is undetermined. It believes that's the real reason there's not enough evidence to convict the Florida mother of murder.

    Extrapolate. Look at what is known and draw a conclusion. It's not that hard.

    No child is born evil–not one of us. That includes Casey and serial killers. What we see is how any one of us can commit A crime, a lie, a coverup, and even a murder. The creator doesn't make junk. This case is a tragedy for all. There are many lessons here for all of us-compassion and forgiveness for starters.

      If there was even an inkling of remorse in her eyes I might tend to agree with you, but there isn't. I'd forgive Hitler before I would even entertain the thought of forgiving this monster.

    Casey Anthony is a lying, self-loving person who took the life of an innocent little girl who called her "mommy". So sad! JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE!

    This is Larry Harmon reporting to you all live from the court house. The jury has found Casey Marie Anthony is not guilty on all 7 counts. The jury made a discovery that wasnt brought up by the state. This would have to go down as the quickest verdict in my many years of working in journalism. The state will be attempting to appeal this and have a withdrawal of this verdict since the media received an unconfirmed report on the verdict that wasnt announced yet in court. This is Larry Harmon reporting to you live, as it happens,

    She's guilty of killing the girl, but I would bet anything that it was an accident. She drugged the girl and put tape on her mouth so no one could hear her while ahe partied or whatever. Caylee probably died during that time then Casey carried her around for days before dumping her. This weave of lies and deceit is going to get her a lethal injection. All she had to do was come clean and admit the child abuse. She'll be convicted of that anyway and probably be in jail 30 years minimum. Now she's done and will be one death row. One less pyscho roaming the streets.

    this case is a sad commentary on what a circus our society has become. It isn't anything different than the roman games and a witch trial. Regardless of her actual guilt, the only real evidence here is the public has decided she is guilty

    What's really sick with this whole monkey pony show, a little girl has died and no one is speaking up. It seems they are covering up for each other, someone knows something.

    Remember that every jury is made up of 12 people too stupid to get out of jury duty.

    You never know what people are going through or thinking, Life is not an easy thing to handle for alot of people and some always want what others have. The right decisions are never made under pressure. But i couldnt amagine trading my baby for anything on earth. She is the most prescious thing to me and the reason for me to live.

    I don't think they will nail her on 1st Degree murder since they never positively identified how she died. I think they will get her on 2nd degree and all the other charges. She will get Life in prison, but not the death penalty.

      You're right, Nickie. That baby put the duct tape over her own mouth and nose. And Casey just lost track of her for a month. It was only a month. Could happen to any mom.
