Casey Anthony Won't Testify in Own Defense


Holloway admitted on the stand that in her original sworn statement to law enforcement she said that she did not have an affair with George Anthony. She said that she lied because she didn't want George Anthony to get into trouble and the media to come after her.

The defense is hoping that Holloway will bolster their theory that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool in the summer of 2008 and that George Anthony knew about the accident and helped dispose of the body.

Earlier this week, George Anthony denied an affair with Holloway. He laughed off the accusation. He admitted to texting her, writing her a letter and visiting her home. He said that Cindy Anthony, his wife, was aware of his visits to Holloway's home.

"I did go there just to console her because she had confided in me that she had a brain tumor and that she was having medical issues," he said. "I never had a romantic affair with Krystal Holloway or River Cruz."

One of the text messages sent to Hollloway said, 'I need you in my life." George Anthony said he sent several text messages to Caylee search volunteers saying similar things.

George and Cindy Anthony displayed little emotion during Holloway's testimony.
