GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The jury’s verdict is expected today in the Casey Anthony trial in Orlando. University of Florida Levin College of Law faculty are available to offer their expertise on the jury’s conclusion.
Anthony is charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008. The case has captured the nation’s attention and continues to unfold as the defense argues that Caylee Anthony’s death was from an accidental drowning and that Casey Anthony’s father helped cover it up.
