|Private Investigator James Hoover testifies in the Casey Anthony Trial|
Judge Belvin Perry explained why he called a sudden recess of the Casey Anthony trial on Saturday. The Defense requested Casey be declared incompetent to stand trial. Judge Perry had 3 psychologists evaluate Casey independently. After reviewing the results he deemed her competent to stand trial.
The Defense called private investigator, James Hoover, to the stand today. Hoover had been hired by George and Cindy Anthony to look into the disappearance of their granddaughter, Caylee Anthony. Hoover testified that a psychic directed him to the location of Caylee's remains but when he searched at that time, he found nothing. A month later, Caylee’s remains were found at that same location, according to Hoover. The Defense hopes his testimony will form questions in the minds of jury members as to whether Caylee’s body was in the woods as long as the Prosecution claimed. The trial will continue again Tuesday morning.
