ORLANDO, Fla. - Prosecutors have begun their rebuttal case in the murder trial of Casey Anthony.

The first rebuttal witness today was a crime scene investigator who testified she took photographs of clothing found in the Anthony family's central Florida home. Court was adjourned for the day in the afternoon, with prosecutors set to continue Friday morning.

Anthony's defense closed earlier today without her taking the witness stand.

The 25-year-old woman is charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee three years ago.

The sensational trial is being televised nationally.

The rebuttal case is expected to take about a day. Closing arguments are expected to be given Saturday with the jurors then beginning their deliberations.

Anthony faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder.
