ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando's chief prosecutor says his attorneys are disappointed with the verdict in the Casey Antony murder trial but they presented every piece of evidence that existed.
State attorney Lawson Lamar said Tuesday after Anthony was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter that the case was very difficult to prove. Lamar also said the delay in recovering Caylee Anthony's remains was a considerable disadvantage.
Caylee was reported missing in July 2008 and her bones were found about six months later.
The prosecutors who presented the case before the jury did not talk to the media at Lamar's news conference.
Lamar and the Orange County sheriff also urged the public to respect the jury's decision and maintain a peaceful resolve.
