I liked it but was frustrated that the trial wasnt over when the book was published. It made it seem like they were in a rush to get it published.

Good book but it seemed like the author was in a hurry to be the first one to get a book out about Caylee Anthony.

I hate when they write the book before the trial.  But with everything written and said about Casey Anthony do you think we will ever get the "real" picture of her?  and does anyone else think all these true crime shows like Datelline, 48 hrs and 20/20 ruin it for you when the book comes out?

Just read an update on MSN. Prosecutors are going for the death penalty.

Karen, thank you for the update even though I'm lagging behind lol.... I've been wondering about this case for a while.

I think Casey deserves the death penalty... Personally anyone that murders an innocent child deserves it but then again that could just be me???

I just watched a episode of 48 hours they layed out the case to a focuse group they used alot of the evidence they will use in the trial.I was dumbfounded  most of the women thought she accidently killed her child and had like a mental breakdown,This has been my worst fear I wish they would have never put the death penalty on the table I don;t think anyone will give her the death sentence I think we should have went for life with no parole .Because the stakes are so high in a death penalty case and some of there scientific evidence I think could be challenged and lead to an apeal for a new trial. I do like that the judge has allowed most of the evidence the defence wanted to keep out. I just hope and pray a jury see;s her for what she really is. The tattoo Bella Vita was gotten after Caley was dead and the premise she was looking for her daughters nanny for those 31 days is crazy,She was partying and sleeping with her boyfriend, I know if my child was missing I would call 911 immediatly the first 48 hours are the most critical. I hope Jose Biaz never gets hired again. The trial starts next month I have been watching the evidentuary hearings.I hope all those party pictures make people see her for what she is.

I read where her lawyers are trying to stop the trial from being televised.  I haven't read the answer yet but I sure hope it will be on Court TV.  I saw that 48 hours program too and if they are correct,  it looks like she will end up with a manslaughter verdict

I just think going for the death penalty backfired.I was glad the lawyer she had who quit said the Zanny the Nanny story was false,Because it is common knowlegde with kids that age Zanny the Nanny means Xanax. Now Im not sure if it means they dose there kids or they take the xanax to deal with stress but it was a common term on My Space when I had mine which would have been about 4 years ago.I was wondering if anyone was going to mention that. I hope they televise the trialand I luv the Judge she thought Strickland was bad lol!

Well look likes more people are jumping ship from Casey defence team. Granted they are working Pro Bono but a high profile case like this will usually find takers .Gilcrest the Jury specialist walked he claimed he couldnt continue not Knowing where jury selection will be made? Funny he was they guy who picked the jury for 48 hours where the jury wouldn''t convict on First degree murder. Why do people keep jumping ship? I think Jose Biaz may be a part of it.I think he is already seeing $$$$$ signs for books and movies. I just think this should be done and over. I also think her wanting her parents out of court during trial is curious does she not want them to see the trial or are they shifting blame? Im ready for tot mom to get her prison sentence and orange jumpsuit.

wow...Jose just said that Casey's father molested her and they keep showing him on camera.  I wonder if he knew what was coming?  And if he is taking the fall to give his daughter a chance for getting off?

I'm so worried this case will be turned over on appeal and she will be given a new trial.I absolutely believe she has ineffective council it is hard to watch Jose Biaz he just really shows his lack of experience and the scenario he laid out is completely ludicrous. I guess he was a lawyer for only 3 years before taking this case.I think he should have encouraged her to look for someone more experienced with all the charges she is facing and the Death Penalty.If anyone doubted her guilt watching her in the court room should dispel any doubts.She just sits the with no emotion most of the time as they discuss her daughter and her remains.She also seems to laugh and flirt around with her lawyer when the Jury isn't present.angry I hope she rots in jail for this.

This case was on 20/20 the other night. They gave it an hour. Very frustrating to watch this play out. The Defense is going with the story that Caylee drowned in the swimming pool and they disposed of the body to cover it up. Come on! What kind of defense is that. Surely any jury in their right mind would know that someone with nothing to hide wouldnt dump the body in the woods if the death was accidental. I just want to scream at the TV!!

I do too but I wish she had a better lawyer, I don;t want this case appealed and have people started to forget and what she did how she acted and I would never want her to get less time the second time.because she has a lawyer who could have done a much much better job than this one! This is one of those things I hate I want Her in jail but Death penalties get appealed quite often.
