Tot Mom Trial: It Never Dies

On Wednesday, former trial judge Belvin Perry, who presided over the infamous Casey Anthony trial, said that Anthony likely killed her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony. But the judge thinks it was an accidental killing.

Perry sat down with WFTV on Wednesday and said that Anthony used “too much chloroform,” in an attempt to knock Caylee out. Yet, he was quick to add that the death was probably accidental.

“The most logical thing that occurred, in my eyesight, based on everything I know about the case, was that (Anthony) did not intentionally kill her daughter. I think based upon the evidence, the most logical thing that happened was that she tried to knock her daughter out by the use of chloroform and gave her too much chloroform, which caused her daughter to die.”

Anthony was acquitted from murder charges in 2011 when a Florida jury found her “not guilty” of the 2008 murder of Caylee. Yet, the verdict did little to change the minds of the majority of people who followed the case, who still believe she should have been convicted.

Since her acquittal, Anthony, undoubtedly aware of the public’s distaste for her, has kept herself mostly hidden and out of the media’s eye. She surfaced earlier this year at an anti-Trump protest in Palm Beach, Florida, but quickly went back into hiding afterwards.
