Lyon acknowledged that the death penalty puts a lot of pressure on a defendant even when they haven’t committed a murder. “She didn’t kill her kid,” Lyon said of Anthony.
There was a long pause.
“You’re absolutely sure without a doubt?” Vieira asked.
“I’m sure,” Lyon responded.
“Based on?” Vieira said.
Lyon pointed to the evidence. “There’s not even any evidence that this was a homicide, let alone any evidence tying her to it,” the attorney said.
Lyon visited “Today” to promote her new book, “Angel of Death Row.” But the show spent more time on the Casey Anthony case. Lyon said there was a lot of anger directed at Anthony and her attorneys

Lyon told NBC's Meredith Vieira that the defense team suffered a setback when Judge Stan Strickland allowed Casey Anthony's murder trial to include a possible death sentence.
"It does put a lot of pressure on her to plea bargain," Lyon said.
Lyon wouldn't reveal details of the defense case, but she said "there's no evidence this was a homicide let alone any evidence tying her to it."
But a medical examiner ruled Caylee Anthony death's a homicide of unknown means. The crime lab found a hair with a so-called death band in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car that matched hairs from Caylee's skull.
Forensic scientists also said they found a flaky substance on paper towels from a trash bag inside Casey Anthony's vehicle's trunk. The substance was identified as "grave wax," which comes from decomposing corpses. In a recent report, an entomologist said microscopic insects known as coffin flies were found that feed off decomposition were also found on the towels and in the trunk.

Casey's Attorney: "I'm Scared For My Client”

Defense attorney Andrea Lyon says she will keep trying to get the death penalty off the table, but she stumbled over her words when she said Casey didn't kill her daughter Caylee Anthony.
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer says the evidence is what it is and that people have a right not to believe that Casey had good reason for not reporting her daughter missing for 30 days and to also not to believe her inconsistent story about leaving Caylee with a nanny who's never been identified.
"Quit whining and get to the defense of this case. The evidence is, the facts are what the facts are. If that is tried before a jury in Orlando, Tampa, New York City, or Timbuktu, the jurors are going to form their opinion based upon their view of that evidence," Sheaffer said.
Andrea Lyon repeated the defense's mantra that the public won't find out until the trial why Casey is innocent, but, Sheaffer says, if they really had something convincing that could spring Casey from jail they would have brought it forward by now.
