ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors in the murder trial of Casey Anthony have called a forensic expert from the FBI to testify about how items found in the trunk of her car showed evidence of human decomposition.

Casey Anthony's trial enters its 10th day of testimony Saturday. Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in the summer of 2008. Her remains were found in a wooded area near her grandparents' home in December 2008.

Prosecutors say the girl was suffocated after duct tape was placed over her mouth. The defense contends she accidently drowned in her grandparents' swimming pool.

On Friday, a crime scene investigator testified that he smelled human decomposition when he first examined the inside of Anthony's car.
