ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The defense will enter its second day of calling witnesses as the murder trial of Casey Anthony, who's accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, resumes in central Florida.
Defense attorney Jose Baez is expected to call more of the prosecution's forensic witnesses to the stand Friday after questioning several crime scene investigators and FBI evidence analysts Thursday about the evidence they collected and examined.
Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter Caylee nearly three years ago. Anthony has pleaded not guilty and faces a death sentence if convicted. The prosecution contends the girl was suffocated by duct tape placed over her nose and mouth. The defense says the toddler drowned in her grandparents' above-ground swimming pool.
Her skeletal remains were found in December 2008.
