It has been three years to the day that little Caylee Anthony died and her mother’s legal team started off their defense by questioning evidence from law enforcement.

On Thursday, Casey Anthony’s lawyer actually got into an argument with the prosecution after he asked FBI technician Heather Seubert if she had performed a paternity test relating to Caylee.  He was trying to show that law enforcement had some suspicion that Casey’s own brother, Lee Athony, was Caylee’s father.  Seubert admitted that she had indeed been asked to test Lee Anthony, to see if he was Caylee’s biological father.

The state attorney Jeff Ashton loudly objected to the line of questioning and that is when the two attorneys started arguing.

Judge Belvin Perry sent the jury out of the room and admonished the lawyers.  “All I’m gonna say is this: I don’t have a hearing problem. The amplification of questions, objections, I don’t need,” he said.

Test results that had already been previously released to the public show that Lee Anthony is not the father of Caylee, nor was Casey’s ex-fiancé Jesse Grund.

In his opening statements Casey’s attorney Jose Baez claimed that his client had been sexually abused by both her brother and her father, George Anthony

Seubert testified that blood, semen and other bodily fluids were not found in Casey Anthony’s car, her clothing, the clothing found with Caylee’s remains, the car seat in her vehicle or on the steering wheel cover -- bolstering the defense’s argument that all evidence in the case is purely circumstantial.

Casey’s defense attorney claims that Caylee drowned accidentally in the family pool on June 16, 2008 and that George Anthony helped his daughter cover-up her death.

If she is found guilty Casey could face the death penalty.
