Judge Stan Strickland rules against Casey Anthony Defense motion
The defense team better get used to bad news these days after a child’s body was found yesterday close to the family home of George and Cindy Anthony. The prosecution was bring murder one case against tot mom Casey Anthony prior to “potential” remains being discovered. When the remains are officially ID’d as Caylee’s, Casey Anthony will be facing an even greater mountain of evidence.
Judge Stan Strickland after hearing arguments from both the defense and prosecution has denied the defense motion filed for access to the autopsy of Caylee Anthony. Basically, because no formal ID has been given to the child remains found yesterday, the defense has no standing to insinuate themselves in the private evidence that could turn out to be not Caylee Anthony. The defense wanted their experts to be present during an autopsy of an individual that they do not know legally to even be that of missing Caylee Anthony.
Defense Team for Casey Anthony denial motion … no soup for you.
Jose Baez and his defense team seem to have their cart before the horse and are assuming that the remains found yesterday are that of missing Caylee Anthony. One wonders why they are so certain that the remains found are Caylee.
