    Just last year in Bradenton, Maribel Chavez was tried for neglect of her child and then later tried for her liability in the death of that child. But the two incidents were not related. The first incident was more abuse than neglect--burns, fracture, bruising. The death occurred when a stove fell atop the child who suffocated for an hour while the drugged mother overslept.

    When the two charges are related, they need to be tried together. Baez would fail in trying to separate them in this case. In order to use pertinent evidence to prove both neglect and homicide, both charges must be tried in the same prosecution. Many reasons for this: if evidence of neglect led the trier of fact to conclude the defendant guilty, the trier has a right to question what followed from that neglect? Here we have statutory neglect provable on its face. The mother ignored the fact her child was missing and unable to care for herself for 31 days. It is unreasonable to separate that neglect from the harm that ensued and to prosecute for a death separately.

    LE has stated that hair from the trunk, in custody, consists of a hair from Caylee alive and a banded hair from her when dead. Cadaverine and putrescine stained the trunk, at least some of it from the nose & mouth. The air samples analyzed by TN Body Farm were positive for decomposition. LE stated the ongoing effort is to prove Casey is directly responsible for the fact Caylee was in the trunk and deceased. Air sample analysis has not been used in prosecution of a homicide in FL before. With sufficient validation of the science, there is no reason not to break ground here, particularly in conjunction with the other physical evidence.

    LE will charge her when they are good and ready and assured Baez has no wiggle room at trial. I am not concerned in the very least.

    Casey is going down and everyone around her knows it.
    I sooooooooo hope you are right & will try to have more of your positive attitude that justice will be served.

    Wow, thank you. That actually seemed fairly simple the way you explained it. Do you teach?

    Yes it does, doesn't it?

    As has been stated before, people have been tried successfully for murder without a body. IF they have incontrovertible forensic proof that Caylee was dead in the trunk they could try her, no ifs ands or buts.

    i have been feeling this way on and off, too. it's so frustrating, and it sucks to feel like caylee is being given up on by anyone, LE or the people who care enough to follow the case and try to help. sometimes i feel like us laypeople do more to figure this all out than the ones who should be. i know LE can't tell us everything, it's just...getting old i guess.

    This case is reminding me of that case they keep showing on Dateline on ID about a man who was missing, found dead, and the #1 person of interest (his business partner) was only charged with stealing the dead man's identity and using his checks. He never got charged with his murder but he is spending something like 30-40 yrs in prison for all the fraud, theft, forgery charges LE was able to rack up on him for using the dead man's checks, id, ect.

    They keep showing this episode like once a week...reminds me of this Casey case every time.

    OK, I went and listened to this segment on the Today show. I think it is all taken out of context. OK, after watching this, in my opinion, it is ONLY this REPORTERS conclusion that there is not enough evidence to try Casey for murder. All sheriff Beary said is that it is difficult because there is no body. He didn't say anything else. He didn't say there are no charges coming. This report wants you to believe they don't have much on her and that they don't have anything to charge her with but thats not what Beary said. This whole report was made up of old clips of Baez and old news. Except for one small clip of beary saying it is difficult when there is no body. That could be old too for all I know. Thats ALL he said. Everything else was reporter interjection. I wouldn't take this to heart too much. I wish someone would interview LE on this and find out the real scoop but I don't think LE wants us to know anything yet.

    First, CA washed the pants long before she told LE about them. JB does not get to ultimately decide on anything. LE can get search warrants and probably already has.

    I'd like to reiterate here, they have a GOOD circumstancial case everyone! They will NOT run to lay charges until the prosecution feels he/she is fully prepared to head to trial as it's Baez right to ask for a 'speedy trial' if he feels the prosecution doesn't have their case 'ready to go'.

    They will be laying charges but LE & prosecution is making certain that they are crossing every 't'. Once charges are laid, Baez has access to EVERYTHING. Prosecution doesn't want to show their hand until they are good and ready.

    If LE says they DO have a case, how many of you out there would ABSOLUTELY EXPECT charges to come in the next day or so. Of course they're going to say things like this.
    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    Respectuflly, Seranade, Neither LE or the DA or the States Attorney has said they are NOT going to try Casey. They just have not arrested her YET on any type of homicide charge. I did not read Sheriff Beary's statement as saying they won't charge her, he is saying its a long, difficult road.

    Of course we all have our opinions and we won't know who is right or wrong until the case comes up for trial. Even then, whether Casey is convicted or not, there will always be differences of opinion on this case. It's going to be an interesting ride, one way or another!

    It still bothers me if these quotes are true. I contend they wouldn't lie, only withhold.
    And the fact there is zero information on any searches going on right now..... These are not hopeful things.

    Agree with everything you said.
    I heard Cindy say in the police video that they (Anthony's) offered all this stuff up and the police did not take it. HUGE mistake.
    I feel as though Caylee will never get justice and her grandparents are a part of that problem. If KC can kill her child she can kill her parents and they should think about that.

    IMO what they currently have is insubstantial to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.

    No eye witnesses. No body. No confession.

    That is heavily in the defenses favor.

    If her attorney asks for a speedy trial, they could be the only charges she ever faces. Florida law prohibits a person from being tried on more serious charges at a later date if the person stands trial for something that's related.

    "If you lose a kid and that results in a child's death, that's one and the same case, because those are manslaughter charges," said board-certified trial attorney Richard Hornsby.

    If Casey was found guilty of child neglect, she would only serve up to five years in prison versus a maximum of life for murder. Still, detectives have never said that Caylee Anthony is dead or that Casey is under investigation for murder or manslaughter.

    http://www.wftv.com/news/17193405/detail.html

    My understanding is they would have to drop the neglect charges and then charge her for murder.
    I have a friend that is a Defense Attorney for the State of Florida. I just emailed her to ask her best legal opinion. Hopefully she will say that the neglect charges will not hinder a murder charge.
    This post is my opinion only unless supported with a link.

    WILL THERE BE JUSTICE FOR JULIETTE?

    Next pretrial hearing in Gering, Nebraska is scheduled for September 15th at 10:30AM MST.

    Good catch pink panther! IMO, this statement is a very clever move, I hope JB and casey get caught with their guard down.

    If what has been released due to the freedom of information is any indication, they have a wealth of evidence against her even without precious Caylee's body. I have all of the confidence in the world in LE. Time is on THEIR side.

    BRAVO!!! That sums up Casey to a Tee!!!

    Everyone who has been a victim of her lies, theft, etc., everyone who spent even 1 hour searchng for Caylee, everyone who has donated money to either the Anthonys or TES, everyone here on WS and the millions of people in the US who are angry and frustrated over this whole thing - We are the ones who will be haunted by this case for a long, long time.

    Casey, nah, she will be too busy making all sorts of new 'friends' in prison

    We buzzed around this earlier but I believe they took immediate possession of the car. I think it was just the paperwork George signed that wasn't done until the next day.

    I do agree with you...things were definitely botched. I was very surprised to learn in CA's interview that she has not turned over her credit card statements. Why were the police just waiting for those? If they hadn't gotten them in a certain amount of time why didn't they get a court order for them? Why did they let the car sit there when even the police could smell something was wrong with that car? And in LA's interview he told police that his mom emptied CA's purse and took stuff out of it; they acted like they didn't even know that happened. But I will say this: CA did have a month's headstart in her lies, etc and I think LE is trying to fit all her lies together on their huge calendar. No doubt, this has been one challenging case for them to unravel. And I do not believe CA will serve any time other than what she's spent in jail in the past for her check fraud/forgery case. I believe, unless they find baby CA's body, CA will never be charged. JMO
