Anthony was found not guilty of killing her toddler daughter Caylee during a trial that tugged at the heartstrings of people across the country. And while Perry agrees that Anthony didn’t murder Caylee, he does think she may have killed the 2-year-old by accident.

“The most logical thing that occurred […] was that she did not intentionally kill her daughter,” Judge Perry 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.”

Caylee vanished in 2008, and her remains were found toward the end of that year. Evidence at the trial showed that Anthony searched online how to use chloroform as a sedative, and traces of the chemical were later found in her car.

“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,” Perry told the Orlando Sentinel.

While Anthony was not convicted of murder, she was found guilty of four counts of giving police false information, two of which were thrown out on appeal. Perry expressed that he thinks the jury was right not to convict her of first-degree murder, manslaughter and aggravated child abuse.

“As I’ve expressed, the only person that really knows what happened was Casey,” he said.
