After 33 days of testimony and two days of closing arguments, a jury of seven women and five men acquitted Casey Anthony of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in just 10 hours and 40 minutes of deliberation.
Red-faced, Anthony, 25, held back tears as the verdict was read in the Orlando, Fla., courtroom. The jury, which ranged in ages from 32 to 65, handed down their decision at 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
