A Win For Caylee

The mother of missing Florida toddler Caylee Anthony made her initial court appearance Wednesday morning on first-degree murder and other charges.

Casey Anthony, 22, faced an Orange County judge at about 9 a.m. EDT with her attorney Jose Baez. She wore a blue prison jumpsuit

No “hot bod” there.

and said nothing except “yes” during the minute-long hearing. She nodded as the charges against her were read before being led away.

Anthony was indicted Tuesday afternoon on the charges by a grand jury after an exhaustive four-month-long investigation into her daughter’s whereabouts.

Caylee’s body has never been found. She has been missing since mid-June and would have turned 3 two months after she disappeared.

A 19-member Florida grand jury issued the seven-count indictment, charging Anthony with aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter and four counts of lying to investigators in addition to murder. She was arrested shortly thereafter and is being held without bond.

Anthony could face life in prison or the death penalty if convicted.

Police recently identified Anthony as a suspect in the case, though she had been called a person of interest since the investigation began in mid-July.

Caylee’s family didn’t report her missing for a month after she vanished. Police have said they think the child is dead based on evidence of a decomposing body found in the trunk of a Pontiac Sunfire her mother was driving.

A few hours before the indictment was issued, Anthony stood silently, sometimes crying, as her attorney told reporters his client is innocent.

“Casey is going through a nightmare and has been living a nightmare for the last seven months,” Baez said. “I sincerely believe that when we have finally spoken, everyone, and I mean everyone, will sit back and say, ‘Now, I understand. That explains it.’”

“When we have finally spoken???” WTF? She’s had seven damned months to speak! She’s done nothing by lie and misguide the police. Why the hell would her attorney wait until MURDER charges are brought and then say, “Oh, this has been a little misunderstanding. Once we get to trial and the TRUE story comes out, everyone will understand and everything will be okay. BULL-F*CKING SHIT!

He said prosecutors and police “threw the kitchen sink at her a long time ago.”

The grand jury heard evidence Tuesday about the charges against Anthony, including testimony from the child’s paternal grandfather.

George Anthony was subpoenaed to testify about the odor of human decomposition coming from his daughter’s white Pontiac, according to MyFOXOrlando.com.

“This is going to be very hard for me to do,” an emotional George Anthony said outside the Orange County Courthouse before going in Tuesday morning. “My focus is on my granddaughter — it always has been. … Just pray for her. That’s all I’m asking for.”

His spokesman told reporters that he was doing the “unthinkable” by testifying in the case against his daughter and asked the press to be respectful of his privacy.

The grand jury was also presented with evidence about the discovery of chloroform during the investigation and about hair samples and stains found in Anthony’s trunk, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.

Casey Anthony, her attorney and her mother Cindy Anthony were all at the closed-door grand jury session.

The child’s grandmother first called authorities in July to say that she hadn’t seen Caylee for a month and her daughter’s car “smelled like a dead body.”

Is this the same mother that refuses to explain her daughter’s actions while her granddaughter was missing? Is this the same mother that diverted that question on the TODAY show? Is this the same mother that tells her daughter nobody is looking for Caylee while Equus has spent a fortune looking? Is this the same mother that is defending her daugter STILL after this sickening evidence is brought to grand jury? This mother is just as sick as her daughter.

Casey Anthony told authorities she had left her daughter with a baby sitter in June and the two were gone when she returned from work. She says she spent the next month trying to find her daughter and didn’t call authorities because she was scared.

Investigators immediately started poking holes in her story. The apartment where Casey Anthony said she had left her daughter had been vacant for months, they said. They said she also lied when she told them she had been working at an area theme park as a photographer.

God bless little Caylee where ever she may be found, hopefully, but probably not, alive. May the trial bring forth true justice, and may Casey rot in hell.
