Jurors in Anthony trial will see more jail videos

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Jurors are expected to see more recorded jail visits in the murder trial of a central Florida mother accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter.

The prosecution will introduce at least two more recordings Friday of visits Casey Anthony had in the weeks following her initial 2008 arrest.

Anthony is charged with killing toddler Caylee in the summer of 2008. If convicted, she could be sentenced to death. She has pleaded not guilty and her defense attorney says Caylee died in an accidental drowning in the family’s swimming pool. The prosecution says the child was suffocated after duct tape was placed over her mouth.

On Thursday, detective Yuri Melich spent the most time on the witness stand. The prosecution says it expects to reach the halfway point of its case Saturday.
