Casey Anthony: Defendant Ill After Caylee Skull Pictures Shown; Trial Recesses Early
Casey Anthony had to be removed from court today after appearing ill as photos of her 2-year-old daughter’s skull were displayed to jurors and the rest of the courtroom.
Anthony did not look up as photos were shown, but while the photos were displayed, they were also described in graphic detail.

In one particularly stark and close-up photograph displayed on the court’s nearly two dozen monitors and computer screens, Caylee’s skull — with empty eye sockets and silver duct tape covering its nose and mouth like a mask — seemed to stare out at the courtroom.
“Miss Anthony is ill. We’re recessing for the day,” Judge Belvin Perry announced at 3:30 p.m.
After the jurors left, Perry spoke to members of the media in the courtroom, saying that Anthony was ill and that neither the prosecution nor the defense had any comment on the matter. The judge asked reporters not to question either side about it. The details of Anthony’s illness were not given.
During a short break before the announcement, Anthony drank a bottle of water quietly as attorneys spoke together and went back to Perry’s chambers, according to In Session’s Michael Christian. She was escorted out of the courtroom during the break, then brought back in, but lay her head down on her arms at the defense table. She did not stand as the jurors left the courtroom.
