Today is the day we hear the closing arguments in the case. Casey Anthony is charged with first-degree murder and could receive the death penalty. She is also charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child along with four counts of providing false information to law enforcement. The child abuse charge could result in a 30 year sentence as could the manslaughter charge. The jury of seven women and five men will deliberate until dinnertime each day until a decision is rendered. Judge Perry will let the attorneys know 30 minutes before the verdict is announced and local media outlets are vowing to sent tweets out via twitter 20 minutes before to give viewers a chance to get to a television.
