Jurors in the Casey Anthony trial ended their first day of deliberations without a verdict as they decide the fate of the Florida woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Anthony is charged with the first degree murder of her daughter and could face the death penalty if convicted. She sat stone-faced as the judge instructed the jury.
They will resume deliberations at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Today, Judge Belvin Perry instructed jurors how to proceed in their deliberations. He gave jurors the option of finding her guilty of a lesser crime such as second degree murder, manslaughter or third degree felony murder. Those crimes do not carry a death sentence.
Along with the first degree murder charge, Anthony faces charges of aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter and four charges of lying to law enforcement.
As the jury headed into deliberations, public interest in the case seemed only to grow.
"I really want to see justice for Caylee. I think this is an amazing, amazing case," said Robin Wilkie. "It's just riveted, not just the United States, but the world."More.
