Clearwater, FL. Another case of the MPD defense, but this time by a potential juror for the Casey Anthony murder trial. Anthony is on trial for first degree murder for allegedly killing her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008.
Elizabeth Ann Rogers, a potential juror, halts proceedings during jury selection with an outburst and tears telling the court that she is mentally ill and has bipolar disorder and multiple personality disorder. Judge Belvin Perry renders her in contempt of court and gives her a light sentence of two days in jail – she could have received 179 days.
Update: Casey Anthony was acquitted of all charges.
