Both of Anthony’s parents testified again in their daughter’s murder trial in central Florida. Anthony is accused of killing Caylee, who was 2 when she disappeared in June 2008. She wasn’t reported missing until a month later and her remains weren’t found until December of that year.
Anthony’s attorneys said they have about six more witnesses to call, but it wasn’t clear if the young woman would testify.
Court was briefly adjourned so her father, George Anthony, could compose himself after he cried on the stand.
He later became emotional again as he answered questions about his attempted suicide in January 2009.
Through tears, he recalled writing a letter to his wife in a Daytona Beach hotel room while drinking and taking pills.
“It just felt like the right time to go be with Caylee,” he said.
The defense attorneys have continued their strategy of painting the Anthony family as dysfunctional.
Casey Anthony, 25, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Caylee’s death and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge.
The prosecution contends she used duct tape to suffocate the toddler. The defense says the girl drowned in her grandparents’ swimming pool and has hammered away at forensics evidence at the heart of the prosecution’s case.
