Early recess generates suspense in Casey Anthony case (Update)

Is Casey Anthony getting ready to enter a plea?  Jury selection was abruptly suspended after lunch today until 8:30 in the morning (Thursday).

Nobody seems to know what’s up.  I thought the judge seemed slightly relieved.  He was getting impatient with the slow moving jury selection and had announced the trial would begin on Monday.

Jose Baez was absent, Casey was wiping a tear from the outer corner of each of her eyes.  8:30 is early for court to start and just about enough time to take a plea, and if it falls through, they still can continue the jury selection at nine.

I’m guessing it’s a plea.  The suspense is maddening.

See Orlando Sentinel coverage:


UPDATE:  Well, Apparently it was something personal with someone.  No explanation, no plea, and jury selection continues.  In fact, they have 12 now and will choose some alternates this afternoon.
