Casey Anthony could be put to death for the murder of her daughter Caylee. Late Monday afternoon, Eyewitness News learned the State Attorney's Office will be pursuing the death penalty in the case against Casey.
Six days before Caylee's remains were found around the corner from family's house, prosecutors had decided not to seek the death penalty against her mother Casey. But on December 11, all that changed and evidence found at the remains scene has convinced prosecutors Casey deserves to lose her life for what she did to her daughter.
"Based upon additional information that has become available since the waiver of intent to seek the penalty of death filed on December 5, 2008, sufficient aggravating circumstances exist to justify the imposition of the Death Penalty," the filed letter states.
The legal aggravating circumstances that would apply in this case would be that the murder was cruel and atrocious and cold, calculated and premeditated.

At this point, Jose Baez will have to find a death qualified attorney to lead the defense as he lacks the experience.
I would love to hear what you have to say.
