Casey Anthony: Forensics Expert Begins Testimony
The trial of accused murder Casey Anthony entered its third week today with the start of what is expected to be a long, drawn out series of forensics testimony from expert witnesses.
Arpad Vass, a researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was the first witness called Monday. Vass has pioneered a novel technique for detecting human decomposition from air samples.
Prosecutors are trying to prove that Anthony suffocated her daughter, Caylee, with duct tape three years ago, and they contend that traces of decomposition were found in her car. Anthony, 25, has pleaded not guilty in the first-degree murder trial.
Setting the stage for Vass’s testimony, Orange County Sheriff’s Office crime scene supervisor Michael Vincent testified on Saturday that he helped obtain several air samples from the car trunk and a forensics bay where the sheriff’s office stored the car.
