The Florida mother who allegedly killed her two-year-old daughter, decorated her left shoulder blade with the Italian words "Bella Vita." Should it mean something to the trial?
Prosecutors presented just two small additional pieces of evidence: portions of a spare tire cover from the trunk of Casey's car.
Casey is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee on June 16, 2008, storing the child's body in her car trunk, and then dumping it in woods near her home.
The Florida mother's defense attorneys claim the toddler was not murdered but accidentally drowned in the Anthony family's backyard pool.
The defense on Wednesday requested that a document be added to the court record stating, "On July 2, 2008, Casey Anthony obtained a tattoo of Italian words that translate into Beautiful Life."
An Orlando tattoo artist testified on Tuesday of having applied a tattoo with the saying "Bella Vita" to the back of Casey's shoulder. During cross examination, defense attorney Jose Baez said it was "customary for people to have tattoos to remember a loved one who had passed."
Caylee wasn't reported missing until July 15, 2008, after Casey's car was found in an impound lot and Casey's mother said it reeked of the odor of death. The child's skeletal remains were found in woods near the Anthony family's home on December 11, 2008, following a nationwide search.
Prosecutors introduced duct tape they said was wrapped around the nose and mouth area of Caylee's skull, tapes in which Casey lied repeatedly to detectives, witnesses who said Casey partied while her child was missing, and evidence of chloroform and residue from a decomposing body in the trunk of Casey's car.
If convicted of murder, Casey may face the death penalty.
