Casey Anthony Trial Draws to a Close: What Will the Jury Decide?

After more than 33 days of testimony and 400 pieces of evidence, the Casey Anthony trial is finally coming to a close. On Sunday, closing arguments will begin and the lawyers will have their last chance to try to persuade the jury before they deliberate.
With each side's case deficient in definitive evidence, Florida A&M; professor Karin Moore said jurors might lean on the most glaring thing presented to them.
That could mean judging Casey Anthony's actions during the month Caylee was missing, Moore said.
"If she knew her child had died or was missing, she was not acting like a grieving mother," Moore said. "It may be enough for a jury."
Casey Anthony is charged with first-degree murder (which would mean a possible death sentence or life in prison if convicted), aggravated child abuse (a 30-year prison term), aggravated manslaughter of a child (a 30-year prison term), and four counts of providing false information to law enforcement.
What do you think the jury will decide?
