Cindy Anthony Testifies for the Defense In Her Daughter’s Trial

Cindy Anthony testified in the opening days of her daughter, Casey’s capital murder trial, often breaking down into sobs and having to be asked to speak up when emotions got the better of her. On Thursday, she was back on the stand, this time being questioned by Defense Attorney, Jose Baez. In that testimony, she delivered a bombshell of her own: it was her that made those incriminating searches on the family computer in March of 2008, just months before her granddaughter, Caylee was reported as missing.

Those computer searches might be crucial in the trial of Casey. The searches included keywords such as “choloroform” “alcohol” and “neck breaking”. Cindy Anthony testified that she had originally made the initial search on chlorophyll and then later looked at the others to discover why her dogs were so tired all of the time. She also explained the searches for the keyword “alcohol” as a search she had done because of a report about hand sanitizers. On cross examination, the prosecution asked if she could be sure that it was her that made those searches because the particular days would have been days when Cindy would have been at work. Cindy’s response was that she was not sure if she was at work or not on those days because they did not stand out in her memory at all, unlike all of the days in the last three years.

Cindy denied making any of the other searches that are being questioned in the trial, nor was there any mention of the frequency of these searches. Reportedly, a number of the searches had been done multiple times. The defense also suggested that some of the searches were instigated by the original keyword search, in other words, searches that had been generated by the computer, however, Sgt. Kevin Stenger, a Forensic Computer Expert eliminated that as a possibility.

Two additional witnesses were eliminated from the proceedings before the jury was even brought back in after Judge Perry deemed them unnecessary, saying that neither had anything to do with the case or first hand knowledge. A watered down testimony may be allowed by an expert who is conducting a study on hair banding, but there is very little that can be accomplished with him on the stand, according to many court experts. The expert is trying to prove through his unfinished research that banding can be found in the hair of a living person, however, he cannot prove this claim yet.

Mark Lippman, the attorney representing George and Cindy Anthony also issued a statement clarifying a statement he had made previously. That statement was misunderstood by several in the media, implying that the Anthony’s felt that Casey was guilty. What he had intended to say was that while the Anthony’s loved Casey, they only wanted truth and justice for little Caylee. He also added that they did not agree with the defense’s attempt to pin any of the blame on George.
