Tuscon, AZ (NBC) — More gruesome testimony in the Casey Anthony murder trial, as crime scene experts described how they collected the skeletal remains of Anthony's two year-old daughter, Caylee.
Casey Anthony spent much of the day with her head bowed, crying, and being comforted by her attorneys.
As prosecution witnesses testified in graphic detail, and with photos that shocked the audience, the scattered skeletal remains of daughter Caylee.
This was the day after Casey Anthony fell ill listening to the gruesome testimony, which cut short proceedings on Thursday.
Prosecutors picked up where they left off, getting expert opinion on how long Caylee's body may have lay in wooded area near her home before being discovered in late 2008.
Caylee had been missing for six months before her body was found. Her mother's original story was that Caylee was kidnapped by a baby-sitter.
But prosecutors claim Casey's the cold-blooded killer of her daughter, using duct tape to suffocate Caylee.
The chief medical examiner alluded to that as evidence to confirm Caylee's death as a homicide. Torn and tattered clothing caylee was wearing when she did was also shown to the jury.
However, Casey Anthony's attorneys are sticking by the defense that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool.
