Anthony's current lead attorney, Jose Baez, is not certified to handle a death penalty case. His office, however, does not seem concerned by the new development, as is evident in comments that Marti Mackenzie, spokeswoman for Baez, made to Orlandosentinel.com .
"This is not a death-penalty case. We will do whatever is necessary to defend Casey Anthony from the state trying to take her life," Mackenzie said, adding, "We already have death-qualified defense lawyers on our team and are prepared for a vigorous defense."
Casey Anthony's trial is scheduled to begin in October 2009.

Too bad they weren't around to protect Caylee from her mother.

This article from the Times Union illustrates how a mother responds when her child is really killed by accident. Note the contrasts to Casey Anthony.

Mother of Jacksonville girl crushed by TV devastated by loss
Accident that killed 4-year-old occurred after mother dozed off

A 4-year-old girl died late Wednesday after her mother fell asleep and woke to find a television stand and TV on her child.
Police this morning identified the victim as Dymounique M. Wilson, who just celebrated a birthday last week, a police report said. Police are considering the death an accident and no charges have been filed.
The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. at 6619 Dove Creek Drive on the Westside.
Samara Brinkley, 26, told the Times-Union this morning she had just fallen asleep when she heard a noise and woke to find the 27-inch televsion on top of her daughter’s upper body. The small TV stand, on wheels, was on the girl’s legs. Blood was coming from the back of her head, Brinkley said.
“I dozed off for a quck minute. I heard a loud boom. When I woke up, I saw the TV on her,” Brinkley said.“I slipped her from under the TV, picked her up, brought her in the living room and laid her down.”
Brinkley said she was panicking and called her mother and 911. She said she was on the phone with a rescue dispatcher, who asked her to check if her daughter was alive.
“The dispatcher told me to put my ear to her mouth to see if she was breathing,” Brinkley said.“When I did, she moved.”
Brinkley said rescue arrived and took her child to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Brinkley, who has a 6-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son, said she is devastated by Dymounique’s loss.
“I still can’t believe it. She was just here,” Brinkley said.“I’m trying to hold it together.”
Lt. Larry Schmitt of the Sheriff's Office homicide unit said no foul play was suspected. The tortured wails of the child's family pierced through the neighborhood when they were informed of her death.

Jack, that is an excellent point. That poor woman. I have been lucky enough to raise my two sons to be wonderful kind responsible young men who treat their girlfriends and their dogs better than the Anthonys ever treated anyone.

My brother was a 19 year old navy medic years ago when his helicopter was shot down and he was killed. My whole family was devastated, but my mother? Grief that profound is so enormous, it literally changes who you are as a person. When a mother (or father) loses a child, part of them is dead and gone forever, as well.

I don't think Casey worried about anything other than being caught. She looks so happy at Blockbuster the day her child died. Sickening.

I know we all try and explain why we keep coming here, why we will not stop trying to be Caylee's voice, and it has to do with that. Caylee deserved a mothers profound and utter grief. she got a mom who rented movies. So we will stand up for her, as long as it takes. until she has justice deserved and can really rest in peace.

I think it's time for someone to duct tape spokesperson Marti McKenzie's mouth after she stated that they will do everything to defend Casey from having her life taken away by the state. Who in the heck is she...she's not a lawyer. Let Baez stand on his own two feet and speak for himself instead of hiding behind his mama Marti Mckenzie's apron strings!

Marti McKenzie makes me so ill..reminds me that she's a twin of Linda K. Baden!

With all Baez's shenanigans, where in the world is Judge Strickland..he's been awfully quiet and not doing anything to control and rein in the situation. Looks like he has allowed Baez and the Anthonys alot of leeway and they are now getting away with so much which I totally think is unfair

I am quite concerned about Judge Strickland...where is he ??? He's been awfully quiet lately and seems Baez, defense team, and the Anthonys have gotten away with so much. He needs to clamp down hard on this case..it is getting out of control because Ringmaster Baez and his clowns are running the circus show.

Judge Strickland needs to put the screws on the lid tightly NOW!!! The natives are getting restless and agitated with the defense team and the Anthonys!

JVM's guest just said on TV, "There are 2,000 children that go missing a day in America". This is crazy. God bless the children. Good Lord.

The strange thing is, she is 'BLAMING' a hispanic woman. Well, 1/2 and 1/2 black. They could hate her for that, so the sword cuts both ways here.
There is no place for Casey, white, black, hispanic, alien, where ever.
There is no place for her to look 'NOT GUILTY'!

Baez has no need to move the trial to south Florida for the fact Orlando is a melting pot...Spanish and Hispanics which include Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Cubans, Mexicans,and Venezuelans, then a big community of Asians, Afro Americans, Americans, etc. They surely have a wide jury pool to choose from! If I were Judge Strickland, I would certainly closely investigate what Baez's true motives are , and take into consideration the super big total costs the taxpayers' would be responsible for this trial! Judge Strickland should consider the fact that the Florida taxpayers have been financially struggling in their own personal lives that they just don't need any extra financial burdens for this trial. After all, the people of Orlando were responsible for putting Strickland on the judge's bench. If he fails and disappoints them, it's a guarantee he won't be re-elected for the next election.

Since Baez and the Anthonys aren't shouldering the millions of dollars the taxpayers are paying for this trial, they think money grows on trees and flow just like water. I feel very strongly the venue should stay put in Orange County where the murder was committed.

Absolutely, Jodi. Casey can get a fair trial right where she is. No need to go to Dade County or elsewhere. I strongly believe that they can find 14 intelligent uninformed people in Orange County to serve as jurors in this case. And honestly if any of us agree to be open minded(our fellow posters, you and me), we could even serve on that jury and only judge Casey based on what it presented in court only. There's also a lot of evidence yet to come. Jurors will have to weigh the negative against the positive to come up with their decision. It's really not hard-it only takes focus and discipline.

Why does he think that he can move this fiasco when he isn't even qualified to be on the team?
The Judge from Miami said that he isn't even qualified to be 5th chair.So that whats they think about Bozo in Miami

How is it that they are letting him in the position of lead PA? Could it be when the trial begins another DP attorney will step in? Really, we can't let this happen. Caylee needs justice.
He can't be and I don't know why Strickland hasn't taken him off the case.The 2 other lawyers that were going to be first chair RAN when they found out there was no money for them and the one from California had his own problems with the Bar in California
I would like to see Strickland put a gag order on any one involved in this case.

That is why I am not sure of Judge Strickland anymore..he hasn't really done anything while Ringmaster Baez, defense clowns, and the Flying Trapezes Cindy and George are running the show and flapping their mouths out there! He has not been very strict as far as putting the gag order on Baez, the defense team, and the Anthonys. Since, I live in Orlando I have been somewhat very unhappy and disappointed with Judge Strickland. Where is he..the only time you see or hear about him is when Baez is filing motions for Casey!!! We really have no idea what Judge Strickland's agendas/plans are regarding this murder trial.

To Sandy Beach of North Port--a few months ago Mark Eiglarsh of Nancy Grace panel stated firmly that it was time Judge Strickland do his job as a judge by reining in the Baez, defense team, and the Anthonys and take hold of this circus because it was running out of control! So far, we haven't heard or seen Strickland having an upper hand on this Baez Circus!

I just hate to think Judge Strickland is just sitting there and just interested in collecting his paychecks without working hard!!!! I am very concerned and worried of what the judge is really doing about this murder trial..is he taking this case to heart and interested seeking justice for Caylee???

I already e mailed Larry King Live and told him why on earth did he and his staff wasted transportation and hotel stays for the Anthonys and attorney Brad Conway. They have nothing..nothing..zilcho..nada new things to say except sheer pure lies in which no one believes anymore. The whole US already are well informed about this case and is going to be a very tough hill battle to change people's minds about regarding the murder case, Baez, defense team, Cindy, Wimpy Georgette, Lee, and Casey.

The public has been fed multi evidences pointing towards Casey.

If Jose Baez and the Defence Team; and George and Cindy would stay off National TV, we wouldn't hear so much about the case here in Colorado!! Casey is guilty no matter where they move it!

I would like to know what Cindy, George, and attorney Conway trying to accomplish by traveling all over the US and trying to shove their faces and lies, lies, lies, denials, denials, down people's throats! People are very knowledgeable about this case and will not be changing their minds and attitudes about this case and about Cindy, spineless Georgette, and Pansy Wansy attorney Conway. Are the Anthonys the only clients Brad Conway has?????? He looks like a desperate and a starvin'Marvin lawyer!
