Casey Anthony's Lawyers: " FBI Botched The Case"

Casey Anthony's Lawyers: FBI Botched Case
Call for Main Charges Against Fla. Woman Accused of Killing her Two-Year-Old Daughter to Be Dropped

(CBS/AP) Attorneys for a Florida woman charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter are questioning the handling of evidence in the case and calling for first degree murder and abuse charges against her to be dropped. That would effectively take the possibility of an eventual death penalty off the table.

Casey Anthony's lawyers filed the motions a day after the State Attorney's Office released hundreds of pages of documents related to the case.

Anthony's attorneys said prosecutors can't prove first-degree murder was committed or that Anthony ever abused her daughter, Caylee.

"Specifically, the state cannot establish whether Caylee Anthony's death was accidental, natural, or the result of an intentional or negligent homicide," they said.

On "The Early Show" Friday, Todd Macaluso, a lawyer for Casey, said bluntly, "Casey Anthony is innocent, she will be proven innocent. The state has not produced any evidence whatsoever to prove their case. The case should be dismissed."
