Orlando, Florida - On Day 33 of the Casey Anthony murder trial, the young Orlando mother, dressed in a yellow button-down shirt, sat at her defense table as the state finished its rebuttal case.

 

This is it.

Closing arguments are now set for Sunday morning after Judge Belvin Perry gave attorneys the day off on Saturday to prepare.

Each attorney will be given three hours for closing arguments. The prosecution goes first, followed by the defense. Then, the prosecution has a chance to give a rebuttal.

The 25-year-old faces the death penalty if she's convicted.

The work records of Casey's mother, Cindy, were discussed today. Computer records from Cindy Anthony's previous employer, Gentiva, played a key part in the state's rebuttal case.

Members of the jury heard testimony from a quality control executive who works for Gentiva.

Earlier in the week, Cindy Anthony fell on the sword, so to speak, for Casey. Cindy claimed that she was the one who conducted searches for Chloroform on the family computer at the Anthony's home, not Casey.

The state has maintained all along that Casey searched for Chloroform in March 2008, shortly before Caylee was killed. Prosecutors say that Casey would use it to disable the child so she could go out at night.

The duct tape, the state claims, was the murder weapon.

An Orange County Sheriff's Office forensics expert also took the stand today saying that a computer search was conducted on the family's home computer.

When Cindy claimed this week that she was the one who searched for Chloroform, she also said that she searched other words like chlorophyll, neck breaking, sanitizer, bamboo and Gentiva.

Cindy said that her pets were chewing bamboo in the backyard, so she searched ways on how to get them to stop and whether or not it was poisonous. She also searched information on a hand sanitizer recall.

As far the term "neck breaking," she said she saw a pop-up on her computer with the words "neck-breaking." But, the forensics expert said someone actually typed the words "neck breaking" into Google.

The expert added that no one clicked the website for Gentiva, which was Cindy's employer. Cindy Anthony said she did work from home by logging in there to the Gentiva system.

She also gave previous testimony that her company let her leave work and continue to be paid when she was allegedly conducting searches for Chloroform on her home computer.

However, representatives from Gentiva said otherwise.

John Camperlengo, a chief compliance officer, testified that records show a person logged in with Cindy's password and username at her work computer the same time that she claimed she was home.

This happened during the week of March 17, 2008.

It shows that Cindy logged in during the morning and logged out after 5 p.m.

During that week, records also revealed that there was computer activity during the afternoons of March 17th and March 21th.

This just so happens to coincide with the time frame when Chloroform searches were conducted at the Anthony home.

Cindy Anthony claims she conducted those searches.

So, is she telling the truth?

Was she at work during that time?

Or was she at home doing those searches?

Prosecutors say her work records show she was at her office on the days in question and not at home during the time the searches were done. The state says only two people were home at that time  - Casey and 2-year-old Caylee.

A co-worker of Cindy's, Deborah Polisano, testified that Cindy was in the office for 10 hours on March 17th. Cindy was also there for nine and a half hours on March 21st, Palisano said.

Palisano told jurors that computer use at Gentiva should reflect the people who sit at those particular seats in the office, along with passwords and user names.
