The judge who presided over Casey Anthony’s murder trial six years ago made a shocking admission this week about one of the most high-profile cases in recent history.
In an interview Wednesday, Orange County, Florida, Circuit Judge Belvin Perry Jr., told WFTV that he thinks the woman who was acquitted of the charge of murdering her daughter probably did kill the girl, just not on purpose.
“The most logical thing that occurred, in my eyesight, based on everything I know about the case, was that (Anthony) did not intentionally kill her daughter,” the judge said. “I think based upon the evidence, the most logical thing that happened was that she tried to knock her daughter out by the use of chloroform and gave her too much chloroform, which caused her daughter to die.”
Perry said he found no fault in the jury’s not guilty verdict, but added that evidence indicated Anthony did online research on how to use chloroform as a sedative.
The judge explained that in the past, surgeons used chloroform as an anesthetic.
“There was a possibility that she may have utilized that to keep the baby quiet … and just used too much of it, and the baby died,” he said. “That’s just one of the many theories as to how this beautiful young lady tragically met her death.”
The judge added that this was just his theory about what happened, and the only person who knows what actually happened was Anthony.

If you’ll recall, Anthony was charged with first-degree murder after her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee, disappeared in 2008. Her remains were found five months after she was reported missing, not far from where the she lived. Authorities never established a cause of death.
Prosecutors sought the death penalty, claiming Anthony used chloroform to quiet her daughter before covering her mouth with duct tape.
In 2011, a jury acquitted Anthony of murder but convicted her of lying to law enforcement.
It’s difficult to accept the judge’s notion that the toddler’s death was accidental. Most people believe Anthony was guilty, despite the prosecution’s inability to convince the jury.
