George Zimmerman Trial: Judge Considers More Charges

Originally posted 07/11/2013 09:35AM

A judge on Thursday will rule on whether to allow the jury in the Trayvon Martin case to consider additional charges against defendant George Zimmerman – which would allow him to be convicted of lesser crimes if he is acquitted of murder.

Prosecutors are asking the judge to let the jury consider manslaughter and aggravated assault when they begin deliberations on Friday, USA Today reports.

Some see the request, which Zimmerman's lawyers oppose, as an indicator that prosecutors are not confident about the prospects of a second-degree murder conviction.

With her head down and face shielded by big sunglasses, Casey Anthony emerged from hiding Monday for the first time in more than a year to attend a hearing in Tampa, Fla., in her bankruptcy case.

Anthony waded through a crush of photographers and reporters to get to the federal courthouse. Inside, she told the court how she survives financially.

"I don't pay rent. I don't pay utilities," Anthony said, according to the Associated Press. "I guess you could say I'm living free off the kindness of others."

In her bankruptcy petition, she lists assets of $1,084 and debts of $792,119.23. She says she has no income but she also lists no expenses for rent and utilities.

When last we saw Rob Lowe in a Lifetime movie, he was playing murderer Drew Peterson with a sandy mustache that made him look like the world's most dangerous park ranger.

Lowe has a much better vehicle for himself in Prosecuting Casey Anthony (Saturday, 8 p.m. ET/PT), in which he plays Jeff Ashton, the Florida prosecutor who last year failed to win one of the country's most notorious capital cases.

Casey and Cindy Anthony Wear Caylee's Ashes Around their Necks

Originally posted 07/02/2012 01:15PM

Almost a year after her acquittal in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, Casey Anthony is living life in seclusion, rarely venturing out for fear she will be recognized. But perhaps the strangest thing about her life now is the macabre memento that Anthony, 26, keeps around her neck.

Late last year Anthony reconciled with her mother Cindy, who recently sent Casey a gift – a necklace containing Caylee's ashes.

According to several sources close to both women, Cindy wears an identical necklace herself. "Casey told me it was the way the Anthony women would be together forever," a friend of Casey tells PEOPLE.

Jose Baez Reveals Casey Anthony's 'Serious Mental Health Issues' in New Book

Originally posted 06/27/2012 12:05PM

Casey Anthony's lawyer Jose Baez says she lived in a "fantasy world" in his soon-to-be-released book.

In Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, Baez writes that Anthony's lies to police weren't proof of her guilt but, instead, revealed someone who had "serious mental health issues," according to a copy obtained by the Associated Press.

"I wrote the book because there was so much that people didn't know, and still don't know," Baez tells PEOPLE. "This book is more than 420 pages of nothing but the inside story. I think people's reaction will be surprised at how much they don't know. My goal wasn't to change anyone's minds. My goal was to tell the story and if people change their minds, it will be because [they learned] more facts."

For instance, describing in the book why the Florida mother took police officers to Universal Studios to look for her daughter, Caylee, Baez writes that detectives should have realized, " 'Wait a minute, we're not dealing with someone who is playing with a full deck.' "

‪Since her July 2011 acquittal in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, Casey Anthony has kept a low profile – living in hiding and refusing all media interviews.‬

‪But Tuesday afternoon via telephone, Anthony, 26, spoke to CNN's Piers Morgan. During the 10-minute conversation – which was not played on-air – Anthony asserted her innocence, took issue with her public image and shed light on her current life. ‬

‪"I did not kill my daughter," Morgan quotes Anthony as saying. "There's nothing in this world I've ever been so proud of. There's no one I loved more than my daughter. She's my greatest accomplishment." ‬
