Casey Anthony NOT GUILTY of Murder

Jury finds Casey Anthony not guilty of murder, manslaughter, aggravated child abuse; guilty of providing false information to law enforcement.

Casey Anthony is not guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of her two-year-old daughter Caylee Marie.
After deliberating for less than 11 hours over two days, a jury decided this afternoon that prosecutors did not prove Casey Anthony was guilty of capital murder in the death of the toddler her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Marie, a 12-member jury found this afternoon.

Casey Anthony embraced defense attorney Jose Baez when the verdict was read, but the courtroom was silent. The prosecutors in the case, Jeff Ashton and Linda Drane Burdick, looked somber.

As soon as the jury left the courtroom, Casey hugged Baez, and then the rest of her defense team. All of them appeared to be crying. Defense team appeared giddy -- all were smiling, including Casey, while she was being fingerprinted.

"While we're happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case," Jose Baez said. "Caylee has passed on far, far too soon."

He then went on to say the prosecutors in this case were incredible adversaries.

Her parents, George and Cindy Anthony, walked out of the courtroom while Casey Anthony was being fingerprinted.

The verdict means 25-year-old Anthony was found not guilty of all charges except for four counts of providing false information to law enforcement officer.

She will be spared a death sentence, but could still potentially face years behind bars in a Florida prison.
She will be sentenced Thursday at 9 a.m.

Maybe now Nancy Disgrace and all the other Merchants of Misery who seem to gloat and talk endlessly on these types of tragedies will go away!
