Channel 13 CF News – Casey Anthony’s defense plans to rest next week

ORLANDO — Jose Baez said Casey Anthony’s defense could rest in a matter of days.

When prompted by Judge Belvin Perry for an estimate Friday afternoon, Baez said he expected to wrap up his case by Wednesday or Thursday, June 29 or 30.

The murder trial against Casey would be in the middle of its sixth week by then. Judge Perry had told jurors he expected the trial to last six to eight weeks.

After the defense rests, the prosecution will have a chance to call more witnesses for rebuttal. Assistant state attorney Linda Drane Burdick told the judge she expected that to take no longer than one to two days.

Judge Perry then asked lawyers on both sides how long they needed for closing arguments.

The state said it would need a half-day for theirs, about the same amount of time as Burdick’s opening statement.

The judge said he would give an order governing closing arguments later. The defense had requested the possibility of each attorney giving a closing argument.
