Hearing Set In Anthony Murder Case
Judge May Rule On 911 Calls Made By Cindy Anthony
Anthony is not expected to attend the hearing, which is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.
UPDATED: Casey's Defense Flip-Flops; Hearing Set For 911 Calls
Posted: 4:15 pm EDT June 16, 2010
Updated: 6:35 pm EDT June 21, 2010
The case against Casey Anthony was back in court Monday afternoon for a status hearing, but Casey did not attend. Judge Perry said she doesn't have to come to the monthly status hearings, which won't involve arguments on major issues. In her absence, one of her lawyers argued the 911 calls made by Cindy Anthony should not be heard in her murder trial. However, Judge Perry decided during the less than 30 minute hearing that the issue over 911 calls will be heard at an already-scheduled hearing July 15.
WFTV also learned Monday, there's new information about the site where Caylee's body was found. The defense has now flip-flopped on claims it has made all along, claims it made that it had evidence that EquuSearch volunteers had already looked for Caylee in the woods where she was found months earlier and found nothing. That was the cornerstone of their argument that someone put Caylee's body there after Casey was kept behind bars. The defense argued Monday for throwing it out.
The defense also appears to be backing off of the claim that Orange County meter reader Roy Kronk, who found Caylee's remains, should be a suspect in Caylee's murder. It asked for more time to decide whether to list Kronk's ex-wives as witnesses after they made wild accusations against him, one of them involving duct tape like the tape that was found over Caylee's face.
Casey Anthony will have to appear at the next court hearing. Both sides will be back in court on July 15. They will once again discuss Cindy’s 911 call and records from the group Texas EquuSearch; volunteers from EquuSearch helped to look for Caylee shortly after she was reported missing.
Also, more evidence is expected to be released in the next few weeks.

UPDATED: Status hearing today in Casey Anthony case

A status hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Monday in the Casey Anthony murder case. The defense and prosecution were expected to give a status update on their preparations for Anthony's murder trial, scheduled for May 9, 2011. Anthony did not attend the hearing.
4 p.m. update from FOX 35 reporter Holly Bristow:
During the hearing, Anthony attorney Cheney Mason offered a glimpse into one theory which they believe could save their client’s life and win her freedom. This comes after the defense questioned some Texas Equusearch volunteers under oath in depositions last week. “Public has been made to believe these people searched the exact area where the body was or tried to and couldn’t and that they didn’t try to and couldn’t, because it was impassable at the time.” “If we’re able to establish a reasonable doubt as to when it (the body) was put there and it comes at a time when Casey couldn’t have done it, then we know conclusively someone else had to do it,” Mason told us. “If we know somebody else put the body there, it’s a matter of who, how and when.”

Casey Anthony: What could happen at status hearing?

A status hearing in Casey Anthony’s case starts at 1:30 this afternoon, but the defendant is not expected there.
“Casey never wants to come to court, so the judge said she does not have to come to status hearings,” WFTV-Channel 9’s Kathi Belich said at noon today. “So there probably won’t be any major legal issues being argued today.”
Casey Anthony: Judge says he doesn’t watch TV

Judge Belvin Perry Jr. evidently isn’t paying attention to the heavy television coverage of the Casey Anthony case.
At a status hearing this afternoon, Perry acknowledged that didn’t catch Cindy Anthony’s interview on “Good Morning America” last week — and asked for an update. He added, “”The only thing I generally watch on television are movies when I watch TV.”

911 Calls Debated At Anthony Hearing
Hearing Set For July 15 On 911 Calls
POSTED: 4:09 pm EDT June 21, 2010
UPDATED: 4:49 pm EDT June 21, 2010
Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry scheduled a hearing for July 15 to discuss the use of 911 calls as evidence in the case against Casey Anthony.
Anthony's defense team does not want the 911 calls admitted as evidence, but the prosecution wants to use them. Legal experts said 911 tapes are usually considered hearsay, but there have been exceptions when the words are considered spontaneous.
Defense attorneys said Cindy Anthony's call was not spontaneous because she ran errands and talked to people before making the call. "It's not admissible evidence. Anyone can pick up a phone and say anything," defense attorney Cheney Mason said.

Judge Wants Casey Anthony Trial Ready For May
Monday, June 21, 2010 5:08:04 PM
In a 30-minute hearing, the judge asked questions to both prosecutors and the defense to make sure they were getting the work done in order to be ready for trial.
Anthony was not in court Monday. She was not required to be there since it was just a status hearing, where no major decisions were made. Anthony’s main attorney, Jose Baez, was not in court either. He's out of town.
Perry is holding attorneys to deadlines, and even asking them to do more to make sure there aren't any unexpected delays, like making sure investigators have turned over any and all material regarding Anthony's case.
"I would hate to have a key piece of evidence of some document that either favors the defendant or the state come up at the last minute, and they have to exclude it or may cause a delay in this case," Perry said.

Casey Anthony: Defense attorney calls Cindy’s 911 call ‘contrived and planned’
Caylee and Casey Anthony, George and Cindy Anthony, WESH, WFTV, WOFL — posted by halboedeker on June, 21 2010 5:48 PM
Attorney Mason told Belich that Cindy’s emotional 911 call ”was contrived and planned.”
Belich said the defense “completely reversed itself” on whether Texas EquuSearch volunteers in summer 2008 searched the woods where Caylee’s remains were found in December of that year. The defense is “now agreeing with investigators that the area was not searched because it was underwater,” Belich said.
Still, the defense is challenging prosecution experts’ contention that Casey Anthony put Caylee’s body in the woods in June 2008, Belich explained.
