Casey Anthony jury deliberations resume in Fla.

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A jury in central Florida has resumed deliberations in the murder trial of Casey Anthony, as it begins Day 2 deciding the 25-year-old’s fate.

The jury of seven women and five men is in the jury room after spending about a minute in the courtroom this morning before Judge Belvin Perry dismissed them to continue dissecting the case.

They were sent into the deliberation room just after noon Monday. They did not return a verdict by the time the judge released them for the evening just after 6 p.m.

Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge.
