Casey Anthony: Reliability of Two State Witnesses in Question?
The defense team in the Casey Anthony case has filed new motions attacking the reliability of two prosecution witnesses. The state plans to call these witnesses to testify about science-related matters in Anthony’s upcoming murder trial.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
First, the defense filed a motion attacking “the unreliability of expert opinion testimony” of Dr. David Hall, a forensic botanist for the prosecution.
Hall wrote a report giving an estimate of how long 2-year-old Caylee Marie’s remains likely stayed in the heavily wooded spot where they were found in December 2008. Some plant-root growth at the scene and on the child’s bones indicates the body had been at the recovery site four months or longer, according to Hall’s report.
The defense also filed an amended motion regarding another state witness, FBI fiber examiner Karen Korsberg Lowe.
The defense, in its new motion, argues that Lowe “has both a personal stake in the general acceptance of post-mortem hair banding and is prone to institutional bias based on her employment by law enforcement.”
