ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A brawl broke out among spectators waiting in line for Casey Anthony trial tickets in Florida.

Spectators fight outside the Casey Anthony trial.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that two men tried to cut in line early Friday, starting a brawl and shouting match as others in line fought back.

Spectators line up outside the courthouse each morning, hoping to secure seats in the courtroom where 25-year-old Anthony is standing trial in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Many arrive at the courthouse in the wee hours of the morning to get in line.

The fight broke out as the crowd was moving to a location closer to the courthouse entrance.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jessie Dorris says she was shocked when the men "just cut in front of us."

The fight broke up and there were no arrests.

A defense bug expert testified Friday that he would expect to find at least hundreds of flies and a distinct human decomposition fluid stain around a dead body left in a car trunk.

The testimony, by University of Nebraska forensic entomologist Timothy Huntington, came on the second day defense witnesses have been called in the trial. Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in the summer of 2008. The toddler's skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area not far from her grandparents' home that December.
