And welcome back everybody explosive testimony in the Casey Anthony murder trial today.
What Casey's father said about -- -- death according to a woman.
Who claims the two had an affair hello everybody I'm Julie Banderas in for generally welcomed to.
Happening now on this that there is there I'm John Scott the defense.
Is working its way through its final witnesses Casey's mother father and brother among those called back to the witness stand today other testimony today included.
How they buried family pets.
Will Casey herself take the stand in her own defense we don't know the answer to that yet the trial is in recess for lunch for another hour and a half.
Let's talk about with mark Furman a former Los Angeles Police homicide detective -- a fire Fox News contributor.
-- testimony about how old the family buried their pets it seems.
A little out of left field I mean Julie and I were just talking about a during the commercial break most people if they're going to bury it -- that happen in a plastic bag or something like that.
What did that add to what we know about what happen to the little girl here.
What John I think it's completely apples and oranges they're trying to suggested mr.
-- has tried to create an inference in front of the jury.
That you have -- M Mo or modus operandi.
About disposing of dead to issue whether it's animals or human it's absolutely ridiculous and I.
I will say that the defense has presented a.
Very good prosecution -- Well a lot of people though I mean we're just talking with a couple of experts who who said a couple of lawyers who said that.
You know what Jose Baez has done here is introduced doubt and that's really what you're trying to do if your defense attorney.
I think you your correct.
-- doubt that they're going to believe anything common out of a defense witness or expert I think that's the kinda doubt they're creating.
Reasonable people are chosen to be on a jury and reasonable people people are instructed by the court and the judge.
And common sense to -- Just exactly what it is that they're presenting in the trial if it's not reasonable or there is another explanation that is far.
They are gonna take a far more reasonable -- defense has not produced one thing.
That they stated they were going to give the jury in opening statements and I think they regret that opening statement I think they wish they would have deferred their opening statement until later in the trial perhaps -- the prosecution.
Rested their case so you think -- the jury will hold that against them.
I think the jury is up and no matter no matter if the defense presented a case or not I think that the jury is gonna struggle with the death.
-- -- -- issue because I think they believe that she has.
The the defendant has some kind of mental disability that hasn't actually been brought out.
So I I think they're gonna struggle with the death penalty but I don't think they're struggling a bit Casey Anthony is responsible for Caylee Anthony's death and disposal.
You're obviously involved in the OJ Simpson case the trial at some people say got over prosecuted that the prosecution just went so deep.
Into some of the minutia.
The jury just.
You know got bored with them and for whatever you know other reasons decided to -- Do you see any of that happening here I mean do you think that the prosecution may have in some ways over -- its case.
No I think the prosecution is not -- doing a really good job.
-- -- surgically presenting evidence they're quick in quick out and I think the difference between this in the OJ Simpson trial is.
This trial actually has a judge a judge that as well aware of the rules of evidence and he actually runs his courtroom.
According to the law not the media.
Not popularity he runs and according to the law as far as I can see judge Perry.
Is completely and different to the camera.
That that does seem to be the case.
It's going to be interesting to see what happens this afternoon are you making any predictions as to whether or not -- Casey will actually take the stand.
I'm not make it a prediction.
-- About Casey taken the stand but I'd like to say something about George Anthony yesterday when mr.
Bryant -- -- brought George Anthony on the stand.
He forgot one little thing this man who was a ten year veteran of Ohio police department he had testified doesn't.
If not hundreds of times now police officers know that -- -- defense attorney.
Asks them a question and there are allowed to expounded a narrative they will continue until somebody tells them to be quiet.
He did that and he got in evidence that this jury never would have heard.
-- obviously didn't expect that allow the evidence is -- -- -- -- Georgia at the -- actually created his expert testimony without going through -- dire.
On the smell of human decomposition the first one the first person that actually smell that human decomposition three feet from the car was -- Ten year veteran of a police department that has smelled it in trunks in woods and in apartments and houses he was a stellar.
Voter expert at that moment and Jose Baez gave it to the jury interest in mark -- good doctor --
