Casey was a no-show at yesterday’s hearing – no big surprise there!
The state went on record announcing they have yet to decide whether or not to seek the death penalty in the murder case.
The judge granted a motion by the defense to delay Casey Anthony's theft case. According to Baez, the theft case could be moot is Casey is found guilty in the murder trial!
Now, this falls into the OMG category!
As late as yesterday, no way Jose Baez was on camera claiming little Caylee is alive.
According to WFTV: the defense sent 30 pages of documents to prosecutors. In those documents, Casey’s lawyers argued that if Caylee is dead, “it was almost certainly a tragic accident.” The documents also said Caylee could’ve been poisoned by Chloroform or she could have died while she was sedated. They said the cause of death could have been an unwitting overdose of a sedative.
The defense documents went on to describe Casey as troubled, possibly depressed. They said her behavior had been erratic ever since Caylee’s birth and particularly in the months before the little girl’s disappearance. The documents also said Casey’s lack of emotion after Caylee’s disappearance is proof that Casey is not normal and could possibly be suffering from mental or emotional stress.
So, the defense’s argument is because Casey is “young” and “never been in trouble” before, the death penalty shouldn’t even be considered! Or, have they already decided to run with an insanity defense? Oh yeah, nowhere in the document is the phantom nanny mentioned!
Was the leak of this document sheer stupidity or a planned strategic move? The prosecution, as mentioned above, hasn’t even decided if they would seek the death penalty!
