Prosecutors Desire The Death Penalty For Casey AnthonyMay 15th, 2010 - 9:29 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
May 15, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Judge Belvin Perry was supplied numerous rationales by the Florida state’s prosecutors as to why the state should move ahead with the death penalty phase in the trial pending against Casey Anthony. Anthony is indicted with liquidating her two-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.
The law of Florida necessitates the consideration of the factors of aggravating circumstances, such as the gruesomeness of an act, and against mitigating factors that would make an allowance for mercy, such as the nonexistence of a criminal record.
The state prosecutors had to raise only one of 15 probable aggravating factors connected with the murder in order to back their case against Casey Anthony. However, they came up with five. They contended that Caylee Anthony’s bereavement took place during aggravated child abuse and was a monstrous act. It was a manifestation of atrociousness and cruelness. They also divulged that Casey Anthony perpetrated the felony of killing Caylee in a cold-blooded, calculated and premeditated manner without any charade of ethical or constitutional rationalization.
The aggravating evidence offered by Jeffrey Ashton, Assistant State Attorney, was that Caylee Anthony was only two years old at the time of her slaughter. Under Florida law, a fatality under the age of 12 is regarded an aggravating factor.
Caylee Anthony vanished in June 2008 and was subsequently unearthed in a dead state. Her death attracted national concentration. Her gaunt remnants were discovered in close proximity to the Anthony home by a meter reader. Her mother, Casey Anthony, was indicted with her first-degree murder.
