Judge Belvin Perry addressed Anthony, 25,  asking, “Is it your decision not to testify?”

 “Yes, Your Honor,” Casey replied.

Baez told the judge, “The defense rests.”

Yet, in opening statements Baez claimed that Caylee was not murdered but had accidentally drowned in the family pool.  Defense had claimed Casey’s father, George helped to cover-up her death but, none of the witnesses testified to that fact.
