    Casey Anthony jury pool contaminated by woman who fought with George Anthony

    11:46 PM, May 10, 2011
    snip-
    PINELLAS COUNTY, Florida - Approximately 50 potential jurors in the Casey Anthony murder case were sent home Tuesday after it was discovered one of them was also a potential witness for the defense team.

    Patricia Young, a St. Petersburg woman who says she simply showed up for jury duty when she was told to, is quite familiar with the Anthony case. She went to Orlando in 2008 to search for the body of 2-year-old Caylee.

    She also filed assault charges against Casey's father, George, in September 2008 after he shoved her while she protested outside the Anthony home.

    Prospective Casey Anthony jurors cite hardship


    Clearwater, Florida (CNN) -- After a second day of jury selection in the Casey Anthony murder trial, more prospective jurors facing weeks and possibly months away from home, family, work and school have been excused.
    While a few were dismissed for expressing opinions about the defendant, most were let go after revealing compelling hardship issues during questioning by the judge and lawyers from both sides.

    Searching for the perfect juror for the Casey Anthony trial
    "Snip" May 11, 2011

    Casey Anthony in the courtroom at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center.

    By Jacqueline Fell, Reporter Casey Anthony's ...Central Florida News 13
    CLEARWATER -- Casey Anthony's life will be in the hands of a jury of 12 Pinellas County residents hand-picked by the state and the defense.

    But the two sides aren't looking for the same type of person for the job.

    Prosecution want jurors who have children -- young children -- and people who tend to form quick opinions.

    Defense wants less judgemental personalities, people who have not heard much about Casey Anthony and jurors who have no children.

    Casey Anthony back in court after leaving for apparent illness
    "Snip" By Anthony Colarossi and Walter Pacheco, Orlando Sentinel

    5:09 p.m. EDT, May 11, 2011


    CLEARWATER -- Casey was escorted out of the courtroom this afternoon. It appeared she became sick during the afternoon session of jury selection.
    Some news outlets were reporting she had a "dizzy spell," but that could not be confirmed. Anthony seemed like she may be having trouble breathing.

    Judge Belvin Perry cited case law that said jury selection could continue without her present, she returned after Baez spoke with her.


    Anthony wipes tears away again

    Baez told the jurors, "It's my pleasure to introduce you to Casey Marie Anthony."

    Anthony didn't make eye contact with them, started to shake her head when Perry read the murder indictment. She shut her eyes and wiped tears away with both hands and a tissue.

    It was a repeat of what happened Monday, when Perry read the charges against her.

    Woman excused because of religious practices



    Juror 3158 told Perry he has sleep apnea and narcolepsy. He is told that he will be called back for a second round of questioning.

    Juror 3385, told Per cancer survivor and devout Catholic and prays throughout the day." Perry excused her.



    Casey is now back in the courtroom.
