ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony's father has broken down crying while describing his emotions when he learned that granddaughter Caylee's remains had been found in a wooded area near his Orlando home.

George Anthony testified again today in the murder trial of his daughter. Court was adjourned so the former police officer could compose himself.

His wife also returned to the witness stand earlier today.

The defense attorneys have continued their strategy of painting the Anthony family as dysfunctional.

Casey Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Caylee's death and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge.

The prosecution contends she used duct tape to suffocate the toddler. The defense says the girl drowned in her grandparents' swimming pool.

Sea...seriously? Hopefully, you'll never be a victim of cirumstance. Let it play out and then the jury will make that call.

Even if the baby drowned accidently as Casey claims, why go to the extremes the mother went to to cover it up? How can any sane loving mother take her child and dump her like trash? Sounds like a Susan Smith remax.
