ORLANDO, Fla. – A forensic botanist is testifying that 2-year-old Caylee Anthony's remains could have been in the woods for as little as two weeks before they were discovered in December 2008, a much shorter time period than prosecutors allege.
The defense witness, Jane Bock, told jurors Tuesday she believed the roots could have grown through the bones, skull and a laundry bag in two weeks. Prosecutors have said Caylee's remains had been in the woods since the summer of 2008.
It's Day 24 of Casey Anthony's trial. She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Caylee and faces a possible death sentence if convicted. She has pleaded not guilty.
The testimony resumed Tuesday following a one-day delay. Judge Belvin Perry scolded attorneys on both sides Monday for their constant bickering.
