Casey Anthony Trial to Hinge on Forensic Evidence

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- No witnesses saw what happened to 2-year-old Caylee Anthony, only her killer knows exactly how she died and no one has confessed.

So when her mother, Casey Anthony, goes to trial Tuesday on murder charges, the jury's decision will likely come down to forensic evidence.

Prosecutors plan to have jurors smell the odor from her car and
present photos that they say show her partying with friends after her daughter disappeared.

They also likely will seek testimony from a botanist, a hair and fiber examiner from an FBI lab, and a cadaver dog handler.

Anthony's defense attorneys plan to present testimony from an
expert in the new field of touch DNA, a bug expert and a forensics
expert who has worked on several other high-profile cases.

    Well if I was a juror, I would not smell of a car where a child might have died. That is something I am unwilling to do. I don't like smelling the scent of a dead cat or some other animal, And I dang sure would not smell to see if I could smell The scent of where a child died.That is so gross.
