Jury Selection Day One: Casey Anthony Cries as Charges are Read Against her in the Murder of Caylee Anthony … On to Day 2


And so it begins …

The jury selection has begun in the Casey Anthony murder trial in the death of her daughter, Caylee Anthony. The jury pool will come from Pinellas county. Now the process begins in finding a jury of Casey Anthony’s peers, 12 jurors and eight alternates, to hear the case against Anthony, accused of killing her 2 year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony. Sadly, Caylee disappeared in 2008 and her remains were found months later about a quarter-mile from her grandparent’s , Cindy and George Anthony’s home. Jurors for this case are being asked to leave their families for two months. UNREAL. How could anyone with a job, a caregiver or any responsibility in life what so ever be asked to deal with such a hardship?

By day’s end, the judge and attorneys were left with just more than 20 who will likely come back for another round of questioning. Meanwhile, 40 more of the original 110 will go through hardship questioning Tuesday.

VIDEO of a perspective juror in the case of Casey Anthony telling Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry that he has an opinion and that Casey is guilty.

Tot mom Casey Anthony cried at the defense table in court when the indictment is read against her. The crocodile tears are hardly going to sway any potential jurors. Maybe if Casey Anthony had cried and searched for Caylee Anthony when she went missing, rather than partying and dancing at clubs, the tot mom would not be facing a death penalty murder case.

After rejecting a last-minute defense motion for a continuance in the courtroom on Monday, Judge Perry gave the jury pool instructions about the conditions of sequestration and what forms of media and communications they will be allowed to access during the process. He then read the indictment, during which Casey Anthony appeared to cry at the defense table, wiping her eyes and nose.

      I find Casey’s lack of tears while potential juror after juror claimed to have already formed the opinion of guilt. Casey would have had a soap bottle to keep the tears flowing.

      I think of Cindy 24 years ago giving birth to Casey and now here she is trying to keep Casey alive. No mother should have to go through that,her little angel is a murderer.
