ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Casey Anthony's attorney resumed his closing arguments by ridiculing the prosecution's forensic evidence as a "fantasy."

Jose Baez told the Florida jurors after their lunch break that prosecutors are hoping the emotional 2008 death of Anthony's 2-year-old daughter Caylee will cause them to see stains and insects that don't exist.

Baez said prosecutors didn't prove that stains in the trunk of Anthony's car were caused by Caylee decomposing there. He said maggots in the trunk came from a trash bag found there.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Casey Anthony suffocated Caylee with duct tape.

Defense attorneys say the child drowned in the family's pool and that Anthony panicked. They say her father made the death look like a murder and threw the body in some nearby woods. Her father denies that.
