Two days ago, Judge Belvin Perry explained why Saturday’s proceedings in the Casey Anthony trial came to a sudden halt.  It was because of a defense motion concerning Casey’s mental competency.

Casey’s attorney Cheney Mason had filed a motion “to determine competency to proceed.” Two psychologists and a psychiatrist were ordered by the court to examine Casey over the weekend.  Based on their examinations, Judge Perry found Casey Anthony is indeed competent.

With this latest development and from the looks of Casey Anthony’s new demeanor being described as giddy by WFTV, I think it’s highly likely that Casey will take the stand.

Snipped:

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Casey Anthony was

giddy, laughing and smiling just before Judge Belvin Perry ruled that she’s

mentally competent to proceed in her murder trial on Monday. Casey’s jovial

mood changed after receiving the judge’s ruling. She’s accused of killing her

2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

On Saturday, the defense filed a motion that Casey be

examined by three psychologist to determine her competency to proceed in her

trial.

Casey entered the courtroom on Monday just before 8:40 a.m.,

wearing a button-down white shirt and grey pants. She had her hair pulled back

in a bun. Casey’s parents, Cindy and George Anthony, were also present. Casey’s

death penalty attorney, Ann Finnell, was also present.

I think her side of the story screams to be told but will it help acquit her of first degree murder?

Thanks for Participating!
