The defense will resume presenting its case in the Casey Anthony murder trial on Monday, and once again, RadarOnline.com will live stream the proceedings, starting at 9am ET.
As the trial resumes in central Florida, the defense is expected to call more forensic experts; last week, the defense called ten witnesses as it began presenting its case after the prosecution rested on Wednesday.
As the defense enters the second week of its turn, the big question remains: Will Casey take the stand in her own defense?
In high profile cases, defendants usually do not testify — experts say it’s just too risky, but ultimately, the decision is Casey’s, and hers alone.
So far, her legal team is not indicating if she’s made up her mind.
The Orlando, Florida woman, 25, is charged with first degree murder, among other crimes, in the death of her 2-and-a-half-year old daughter Caylee, whose body was found in a wooded area in December, 2008, six months after she was reported missing.
Prosecutors contend Casey used duct tape to suffocate the girl, while the defense maintains Caylee accidentally drowned in the family’s pool, and that Casey’s father, George Anthony, covered up the crime.
If convicted of first degree murder, Casey could face the death penalty.
