Accidental death from application of xanax or chloriform, maybe, but that is negligent homocide...and that's what she should have been convicted of (manslaughter). But she did not drown and her parents had nothing to do with it. How could you see those jailhouse discussions with parents and child and possibly consider that? Do you think the parents staged and acted out multiple discussions with Casey to ask about her missing daughter, knowing she was already dead?
who's xanax was that? the mothers or Casey ?

one thing i dont believe is that the father molested her when she casey was younger. Why would she allow him to care for her daughter if her father abused her???////

No, this trial was to decide the guilt or innocence of Casey Anthony.

Why didn't Mason call to catch the real killer if his client didn't do it! Where is the drosning proof, sex abuse proof and he is the one calling other people names....wow!
Why would he do any of that? That is not his job.

There is no way the jury could have convicted her of frist degree murder but they could have convicted her of manslaughter. There is no doubt she had something to do with her daughter's death and that meets the criteria for manslaughter. Manslaughter doesn't differentiate between accidentally causing a death and deliberate actions that cause one but it assumes you didn't intend to cause one. While I'm not sure that's the case, there is no doubt she was involved between her lying about where her daughter was, the odor of decomposition in her trunk and her behavior in the days after her daughter disappeared.

For first degree they would have had to prove not only that she had something to do with her daughter's death but that she deliberately caused her daughter's death. Without a cause of death, that is a very tall order to fill.

They should have at least added "Abuse of a Corpse" to the charges...the prosecution was just feeling like the jurors were at least sensible. No one could imagine that she would be found not guilty on all charges except lying to police...no one with any sense...the law is not that complicated. The problem is that the jurors did not review the evidence, and actually understand anything...

No, because they could not "prove" that she is the one who placed the child in the garbage bag...

I wonder, in these days of video and tv, that people need things spoon fed to them, like they need to see a video of it to realize it happened. Back in the old days, a person was tried by a jury of their peers, and there was some sense to it...the law has not become more complicated, nor are people less educated...perhaps all the new evidence with being able to test air, and maggots..and all that stuff clouds the real picture...a child was thrown away in a trash bag. And maybe people just can't fathom how to sort through all the "evidence"...maybe the presentation has become more complicated, not the law.

Wow, interesting statement. You have a major point here.

Yes, my new plan...to reduce the deficit, and court problems...and complicated trials with complicated evidence with all these conflicting "experts"...all trials have an 8 hour limit...3 hours for each, prosecution, and defense...with time for summations after the presentations...
