The nebulous sometime-in-2011 trial date has been nailed down by Judge Stan Strickland. Casey Anthony’s capital murder trial is set for May 9, 2011.
Details on the expenses she wants the state to pay are out, too–a total of $112,000. Of that accrued amount, $22,500 is for Chicago death penalty specialist Andrea Lyon. The balance, nearly $90,000, is owed to good, old Jose Baez. So much for defending Casey out of the goodness of his heart.
Caylee is worth more than that, in my opinion. But the value of a child-murdering mother like Casey? Not hardly. But it is the price we may have to pay to secure justice for little Caylee.
