ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — After more than 33 days of testimony, 400 pieces of evidence and sweeping promises from attorneys to prove how 2-year-old Caylee Anthony died, neither prosecutors nor defense attorneys have provided concrete evidence showing whether the girl was killed by her mother.

And when closing arguments begin Sunday, jurors are likely to be skeptical.

Prosecutors have said Casey Anthony suffocated the toddler with duct tape, though their case has been highly circumstantial. They have focused on the lies Anthony told in the month after her daughter was last seen, and an odor detected in the trunk of her car.

Defense attorneys, meanwhile, have not provided concrete evidence to support their claim Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool.
