ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The defense resumes its case in central Florida in the trial of Casey Anthony, who's accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

Both sides return to an Orlando courtroom Monday after a day's recess.

On Saturday, a renowned forensic expert called the autopsy done on Caylee "shoddy" and that duct tape prosecutors claim suffocated the girl was not applied until after the child's body decomposed.

Twenty-five-year-old Anthony is charged with murder and has pleaded not guilty in the case. She faces a possible death sentence if convicted.
