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