    Casey Defense To Argue Mistrial, Wind Down Its Case
    "Snip" Updated: 6:52 am EDT June 29, 2011

    Day 42 of Casey Anthony’s murder trial could bring several new developments as the defense is on the verge of wrapping up its case.

    Before testimony on Wednesday, Casey’s attorneys are expected to argue that the whole trial should be thrown out and started over with a different jury.

    The court will hear defense arguments about a new death penalty ruling that will happen with a member of the defense team on the record by phone.

    The defense is expected to call a grief expert to the witness stand on Wednesday.

    Casey’s defense team said they have only a half dozen witnesses left to call.

    Judge Perry made it clear that it's up to Casey whether she wants to testify. “If the defendant chooses not to testify, I will have to inquire to make sure it's her decision and her decision alone,” said Perry.

    Judge Perry: Did the Dessert Lady show up today?

    "Snip" By Allison Walker, Entertainment Reporter/Anchor
    Last Updated: Wednesday, June 29, 2011

    Patti Schmidt owns The Dessert Lady on Church Street in downtown Orlando.

    "I heard him mention us," Schmidt said. "It was awesome!"

    Schmidt said people all across the country are blowing up her email and Facebook page.

    Schmidt said the jury's getting custom-made cupcakes this Friday (carrot cake and chocolate flavored).

    Ashton's son John was the one who ordered it. He asked Ryan Totka and his "StayDwight" campaign make it.

    Schmidt said she feels badly for the jurors and will continue getting treats until a verdict is read.

    George Breaks Down During Talk Of Caylee's Remains

    "Snip" Updated: 12:58 pm EDT June 29, 2011

    George Anthony testified on Wednesday in Casey Anthony's murder trial and cried as he talked about the discovery of Caylee's remains.

    Baez began to question George about Casey's claim that he molested her.

    "You would never admit to molesting your daughter?" Baez asked George.

    "I would never hurt my daughter," George replied.

    "My question is, you would never admit to it?" Baez asked.

    "I would never do anything to harm my daughter in that way," he replied.

    Baez tried to imply that George was lying.

    'It's after this alleged argument you had with your daughter about the gas cans…" Baez states.

    "It's not alleged, sir, it happened," George said."Myself, my daughter and God know the truth."

    "Is there anyone else you want to add in there, a dog or something?" Baez remarked.

    "Objection!" stated prosecutor Jeff Ashton.

    "Sustained," Judge Perry said.

    George was also questioned about his suicide attempt.

    "I needed at that time to go and be with Caylee, because I believed I failed her," he said.

    Earlier, Cindy was called to testify. Baez began questioning Cindy and asked if she remembered her son, Lee Anthony, going into Casey's room at night. Prosecution objected and the judge and attorneys entered a sidebar

    Casey Anthony trial: 'I needed to go and be with Caylee' George Anthony's suicide note read

    "Snip" By Anthony Colarossi and Walter Pacheco, Orlando Sentinel

    1:03 p.m. EDT, June 29, 2011 (Page 1 of 7)

    George Anthony, broke down several times on the witness stand today after he denied sexually abusing his daughter Casey and acknowledged he tried to kill himself "to be with Caylee." It was an incredibly emotional morning for George.

    George was especially emotional as he spoke of his early 2009 suicide attempt and feelings he had after investigators recovered his granddaughter's remains on Dec. 11, 2008.

    He was grilled by Jose Baez, Baez has claimed that George Anthony sexually abused Casey and also knew that his granddaughter died in an accidental drowning in June 2008

    But George Anthony's testimony today directly contradicted all of those claims.

    George said, he purchased the weapon to force Casey Anthony's friends to tell him what happened to his granddaughter.

    Casey Anthony's defense renews fight against death penalty

    Judge Perry said he has reviewed the motion, and will reserve ruling for now, and would decide before the jury returns with a verdict.

    Last Updated: Wednesday, June 29, 2011 9:09 AM
    "Snip"
    ORLANDO -- Ann Finnell said she now has a new case law to back up the renewed motion.
    Finnell phoned into the courtroom Wednesday morning from her Jacksonville office to argue her new motion for a mistrial, which she filed after a federal court judge in Miami ruled the death penalty unconstitutional a week earlier.

    Casey was alone at the defense table as Finnell began her argument at 8:30 a.m. With no one present to speak for her, Casey, herself, stood up and told the judge, "I agree with Ms. Finnell."In their motion, Anthony's legal team asked the court to declare a mistrial and start over from the beginning, this time selecting a nondeath-qualified jury.

    Video Story Man arrested near jury room http://www.cfnews13.com/video?clip=...ane_center/mark-schmidter-0629.flv&vtitle=Man arrested near jury room

    A man named Mark Schmitter was allegedly handing out pamphlets near the jury room. The pamphlets reportedly had nothing to do with Casey Anthony.

    Schmitter will have a hearing on July 6. Bond set at $2,500. Judge Perry had to handle it, because it was near his jury.

    Day 31: George Anthony in tears over questions about suicide attempt

    Casey Anthony's father broke down on the witness stand during questions about his granddaughter, and admits to the jury that he tried to kill himself in January 2009.

    When George stepped down, he took a deep breath and looked directly at his daughter while walking back to his seat.

    Video Stories George Anthony bursts into tears http://www.cfnews13.com/video?clip=...cane_center/george-cry-0629.flv&vtitle=George Anthony bursts into tears

    Flashback: George Anthony's suicide attempt in Daytona Beach
    When Baez started asking about the Anthonys' appearances on various national talk shows, George snapped back.

    "Mr. Baez, I have tried to be nice to you, and I have tried to answer the best of my ability," he said. "It had nothing to do with guilt or innocence, or anything like that. We did that, sir, for self-preservation, to bring awareness to what my granddaughter meant to us."


    After a short recess, Baez asked George about molesting his daughter. He again denied it, repeatedly saying he would never do anything in that way to harm his daughter.


    "In that way?" Baez inquired, though an objection by the state was sustained. He then shifted his questioning back to George's gas cans. He again said he put a piece of duct tape on one of his cans, because a plastic piece was missing when Casey angrily gave them back to him.

    During cross-examination, George told prosecutor Jeff Ashton that he held out hope that Caylee was alive from July 15, 2008, to the day she was told the remains were Caylee.

    He burst into tears as he finished his answer. The judge asked if he wanted to take a break, but George replied, "No, I need to get through this."

    As George broke down on the stand, Casey simply stared at her father.

    George's suicide note was exempted from public records during a previous hearing with the family's previous attorney, Brad Conway, in 2009. Ashton, however, provided a copy of it to Judge Perry, who sent the jury out of the courtroom to review it.

    With George, Cindy and the jury out of the courtroom, Ashton said the suicide note stated the George got a gun with the intent to go get answers from Casey's friends, and then kill himself.

    Baez argued George wrote the letter to appear innocent, but Ashton said it showed that George did not know what happened to his granddaughter.

    "Snip" Casey Anthony told Judge Perry she agreed with her attorney’s motion for mistrial
    Updated: 4:00 pm EDT June 29, 2011

    Judge Perry was in court promptly at 8:30 a.m., along with the prosecution. However, none of Casey's attorneys were present. Casey's death penalty attorney, Ann Finnell, called into the courtroom via telephone to discuss her motion for a mistrial. Finnell argued for the judge to reconsider regulation for a mistrial. She said a new appeals case out of south Florida ruling that the death penalty is unconstitutional means the current jury should be re-seated.

    Judge Perry asked if Casey was aware of this and agreed, and she stood up and said, "I agree with Miss Finnell." (watch raw video) http://www.wftv.com/video/28393154/index.html

    Casey's attorneys arrived about 10 minutes later.

    Perry said the court will reserve ruling on the defense's request for mistrial until a subsequent date. Perry said he will rule on the request "prior to the verdict, if we get that far in this case."

    Roy Kronk's Son Brandon Sparks testified just before Kronk Today
    "Snip" Updated: 4:36 pm EDT June 29, 2011

    Brandon Sparks stated that he received phone a phone call from his dad telling him to watch for him on television. Sparks stated that he received the phone call in November, however, that month is inconsistent to when Kronk was asked to appear on T.V.


    Prosecutor Linda Drane-Burdick was able to prove that fact to the jury. She said that Caylee's skull was found in December and the interview was scheduled after that time, proving that Sparks either made up the story or was confused about the dates.
