http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/orange/orl-casey-anthony-death110508,0,6113475.story Submitted by defense to prosecution outlining why prosecution should not seek death penalty, in part reads: "The crime was not cold, calculated and premeditated. In the months leading up to Caylee's disappearance, Anthony's behavior was described by friends and family as "erratic and not entirely rational." He wrote that filicide the act of a parent killing a child is different than other homicides. The underlying reasons why mothers kill are complex and can be divided into various categories. For example, one type is a parent who kills under influence of mental illness. Another type suggests a parent's motive may be to save the child from real or imagined harm. Juries are more likely to show mothers mercy. He mentioned Andrea Yates a Texas mother who drowned all five children was sentenced to life in prison. Susan Smith, the Arkansas mother who pushed her car with her two children inside in a lake, got life in prison." Is this an acknowledgement of Caylee's murder??
