Anthony trial enters 30th day

The trial of a Florida mother charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter resumes in an Orlando courtroom, a day after her attorneys sought a mistrial and a judge ruled that she was competent to continue the trial.
Testimony resumes Tuesday morning, a day after Casey Anthony's attorneys asked the judge to select a new jury. The attorneys sought the mistrial based on a ruling by a federal judge in Miami last week. It declared Florida's death penalty unconstitutional.
Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge.
The trial judge ruled Anthony is competent after her attorneys asked that she get a mental evaluation.
