Prosecutors rested their case earlier Wednesday, and Perry rejected a defense request for a judgment of acquittal, saying the jury must decide what to make of the evidence. Casey Anthony’s defense attorneys will begin presenting their case Thursday. The trial, held in Orlando, is in its fourth week. The defense has said Caylee was not killed, but rather drowned in the family pool on June 16. Defense attorney Jose Baez told jurors that Casey Anthony and George Anthony, panicked when they discovered the body and covered up her death. George Anthony rejected that scenario in his testimony the first week of the trial. In arguing for acquittal, defense attorney J. Cheney Mason told Perry the state had failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt and noted that evidence against Anthony is purely circumstantial.
