Judge Adjourns Casey Anthony Trial Until Monday

ORLANDO (CBS4)– The Casey Anthony trial is on hold until next week.

Attorneys for the Florida mother charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter were expected to continue calling witnesses on Saturday. But after meeting with lawyers from both sides in the morning, the judge announced that court would adjourn until Monday. He said a “legal matter” had come up.

Anthony’s attorneys expect to wrap up their case by mid-week. Prosecutors will then need a day or two for rebuttal witnesses. That means jurors could start deliberations as early as a week from now.

Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge. Her defense attorneys claim Caylee Anthony accidentally drowned in the family’s swimming pool.
