Pictures Of Caylee's Remains Shown To Jurors

(CNN) -- Casey Anthony cried Thursday as photographs of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee's skeletal remains were displayed in an Orlando courtroom during her capital murder trial.

Technician Jennifer Welch with the Orange County, Florida, Sheriff's Office detailed items found with the little girl's remains in her testimony, including a black plastic bag, an off-white canvas bag, a red plastic Disney bag, a pair of shorts, a blanket and "clothing remnants." Duct tape could be seen on the facial region of the skull, she testified.

Anthony cried as the photographs were displayed Thursday in the Orlando courtroom, and avoided looking at the screen where they were shown. Jurors took notes as Welch testified. Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, were not in the courtroom while the photos were shown.

Anthony, 25, faces seven counts in Caylee's death, including first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and misleading investigators. If convicted, she could face the death penalty.

The toddler's family last saw her on June 16, 2008, but no one alerted police until July 15, when the girl's maternal grandmother tracked down Casey Anthony and demanded answers.

Prosecutors allege Casey Anthony used chloroform on her daughter and suffocated her by putting duct tape over the little girl's mouth and nose. They allege she put her daughter's body in her car trunk before disposing of it. Caylee's skeletal remains were found on December 11, 2008, less than a mile from the home of Casey Anthony's parents.

Casey Anthony has pleaded not guilty and denied having anything to do with her daughter's death. Defense attorney Jose Baez has said that when all the facts are known, it will become clear his client is innocent.

Jurors also heard a recording of a 911 call in which a utility worker reported that meter reader Roy Kronk claimed to have found a skull at the site where the remains were found.

Questioned by Baez, Welch agreed that it was paramount that a crime scene or remains not be tampered with, saying it could affect an investigation.

Numerous photographs were introduced into evidence of the skull, along with the duct tape on it and other items found at the scene, such as the canvas laundry. Besides Welch, jurors heard testimony from Steve Hanson, chief investigator for the district medical examiner's office, and Gary Utz, Orange County chief deputy medical examiner. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM CNN
