Casey Anthony: Paternity Question Halts Trial
Judge Belvin Perry immediately dismissed the jury in the murder trial of Casey Anthony after defense attorney Jose Baez posed a controversial paternity question surrounding Anthony’s brother, Lee, being Caylee Anthony’s father.
After the jury left, a testy argument erupted between attorneys over the appropriateness of the question.
Heather Seubert, an FBI expert on DNA, told the judge that both Lee and George Anthony, Casey’s father, were excluded as possible fathers of Caylee.
Perry chided Baez and asked him to read up on case law on “good faith questions,” before taking a recess for lunch.
