Judge In Casey Anthony Case Thinks Caylee Killed By Casey By Accident



Casey Anthony was "more than likely" the person who used too much chloroform that killed her 2-year-old daughter, the former judge who presided over the case told HLN on Thursday.

Belvin Perry, a retired Florida judge who is now an attorney, told HLN's "On The Story" that he thinks the death of Caylee Anthony was the result of someone overdosing the child with chloroform, which is banned in the United States as an anesthetic. "It's quite evident that whoever did this, and more than likely it may have been Casey, used too much (chloroform)," he said, pointing to high levels of the chemical in the trunk of her car.
But he said he thinks the absence of evidence of abuse leads to the conclusion that Caylee's death in 2008 was "purely accidental."

During Anthony's trial, covered by media from around the world, prosecutors alleged she killed Caylee by using chloroform and covering her nose and mouth with duct tape, and that she put her body in the trunk of her car before dumping it in the woods.
The defense said Caylee drowned in the Anthony family pool on June 16, 2008, and that Casey Anthony and her father, George, covered up the death.
On July 5, 2011, a jury found Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child, while convicting her of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement. Two of the convictions were later overturned on appeal.
The former judge said he found Anthony to have two different personas in court. One was for the 12 people deciding her fate.

"Casey in the presence of the jury was very calm, very easygoing, mild-mannered, in a very sympathetic-appearing person," he said.
When the jury wasn't in the room, she was very different. "She was quite in charge, quite demanding and quite manipulative," he said.
Belvin did not fault the jury for its decisions.

"The jury did what the jury did and there are various views as to how this evidence could be perceived," he said. Belvin said there was evidence for a first-degree murder conviction, but it depended on perspective. Looked at through different lenses, he said, the evidence also supported a conviction for second-degree murder or for manslaughter. Or jurors could have said they didn't know what happened.

She was "very calm" because she's a sociopath who killed her daughter so she could continue partying. What an idiot judge.

Guesser said...

@s, agree, what the judge says about her behavior is more telling than his opinion.

Of course she killed her kid and got away with it thanks to the idiot jury. Her mom created this monster with her double speak spinning and forcing her to have the child. Poor baby was a pawn in there dysfunctional relationship. Lies about who the dad was, her "job" and her lifestyle....what a piece of work.

When you accidentally cause the death of your child, the aftermath doesn't include driving around with her body in the trunk of your car, wrapping duct tape around her head and dumping her trash bag-wrapped body, making up a fake nanny, a fake job, etc.
I watched the trial, maybe the judge wants a shot at Casey - everyone else has had one.

Sad.
A woman too young and immature to have a child, forced to have the child when pregnant from unprotected sex, and not mentally or emotionally strong enough to deal with the constant demands and needs of such a young child.
Sad and horrible outcome.

Not completely OT but the POS who got her off, Jose Baez, is now defending Aaron Hernandez up in Boston (ex Patriot star tight end \ gang member accused of several murders).

Every time I see her picture I want to stick my hand through the computer monitor and punch her in the face! Enough already! She is a monster of the first degree. Her daughter was absolutely beautiful. I cannot imagine what her little life was like. Beyond sad and tragic.

I feel like voters and potential jurors need to pass a minimal IQ test before making decisions. Of course she killed her kid, intentionally or not, she showed zero remorse and discarded her dead daughter like trash

Now imagine Casey Anthony was a poor father who was black. Imagine if she wasn't cute and white and female. Would she have gotten away with murdering her own child? The male white jurors probably had a boner for this sociopath broad. Same bitch asses who voted for Drumpt.

sandybrook said...

The main problem with the case is that she was tried for first degree murder--pre-meditated murder. And you have to prove it, and they didn't prove it. All the legal experts said that if they charged her with 2nd degree murder--basically an act of passion not planned in advance, they would have gotten her.

I'm from FL. This and the OJ case are two standout travesties, except she's still out. At least OJ got his. You have to hope and presume that sociopath will do something one day and justice will finally happen. Those jurors were complete dumbasses. And they had the option to find one of the lesser included crimes. It wasn't all or nothing and the stupid bunch didn't even find her guilty of child neglect. Travesty.

Everyone is fooled by her because she's pretty. If she were ugly they would have thrown the book at her.

Jennifer said...

He seems to make a habit of befriending psychopaths. Sounds like the lawyer is one himself.

Jennifer said...

The females all thought she looked like their daughter and they couldn't get passed that and the men all had a hard on for her. Her looks got her off. People just couldn't buy that a person who looked as clean and pretty as her could do something like this so they bought all that fake sex abuse nonsense Casey's lawyer peddled.

Yup said...

I think she's manipulated people that way her whole life. She's a pathological liar who gets away with everything. It didn't help that she has a spineless, enabler mother covering for her every step of the way.

chloroforming your child is first degree murder not an accidental homicide or second degree anything.

if you chloroform your 4 year old you can pretty much expect death to follow.

she is a hollow , souless witch and I hope to see her in prison someday, where she belongs.

I followed this case very very closely and know more than I ever wanted to know about Casey.She is no poor kid that was forced to keep her child.She wanted to hang at her boyfriends,who was a college student and he didn't think his apartment was a appropriate place for caylee to be.So she got rid of her.She also has stolen $ from friends and her elderly grandma.She is a evil POS!

Laura palmer said...

yes, I watched everything too, read the books .and she is not pretty! her head has a weird slope and she has creepy elfin ears, she is a 100 percent sociopath and a murderer. She was a spoiled brat who was jealous of her own baby.

I can't even stand the sight of her.
