Bug expert testifies in Casey Anthony trial
ORLANDO, Fla. - June 16, 2011 (WPVI) -- The defense has called a bug expert to testify in the murder trial of Casey Anthony, who's accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter in central Florida.
Attorney Jose Baez called Timothy Huntington, a forensic expert specializing in entomology, to the stand on Friday. Huntington testified about the insects in the trunk of Anthony's car and at the scene where her daughter was found.
The defense claims the smell from the trunk came from trash. Prosecutors say it came from the girl's body.
Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter Caylee. She faces a death sentence if convicted. The prosecution contends the girl was suffocated with duct tape. The defense says she drowned in a swimming pool.
Caylee's skeletal remains were found in December 2008.
