In the second day of the defense laying out their case, Casey Anthony laughed out loud during the questioning of her own “bug expert” witness on the stand.

Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton was cross-examining defense witness Dr. Tim Huntington, an insect expert, about a study he used where he placed pigs in the trunk of a car to emulate conditions in Casey’s car where the prosecution allege evidence of a decomposed body was found.

Ashton said that the pigs were not wrapped in blankets and bags the way Caylee’s remains were when they were allegedly placed in the trunk of the car.

“Why didn’t you wrap your pigs in a blanket?” that state attorney asked. Casey Anthony laughed at his question, the first emotion she has shown in days.

The state attorney also had Huntington admit that when he examined Casey’s car two years after Caylee disappeared it smelled and while he originally said it was the scent of garbage he admitted that there was not any trash in the trunk.

Casey is being tried for the first-degree murder of her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.  She disappeared on June 16, 2008 and Casey’s defense claim she drowned in the family pool and her father George Anthony helped her cover-up the death and lie about it.

The prosecution argue that Casey murdered her daughter. If found guilty of first-degree murder she may face the death penalty.

Casey’s defense will continue to present their case to the jury on Saturday for a half day of testimony. RadarOnline.com will be live streaming the proceedings.
