The Casey Anthony verdict is in. Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter today, flooding Twitter and Facebook with an air of hostility. Internet users wondered where the reasonable doubt was and many said that Anthony has gained celebrity for murdering her young child. Some said that the trial will likely prompt the young star to write novels about her tumultuous life.
The young mother was charged with aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter and faced the death penalty. Anthony was found guilty of four minor charges of misleading a law enforcement officer.
The defense maintained that the child accidentally drowned in the family's swimming pool, prompting a cover-up by the family. The prosecution said that Anthony, 25, killed her daughter using duct tape and chloroform before disposing of the body in a nearby wooded area.

Ashton Kutcher retweeted William Lang, who said, OJ Simpson finds this verdict outrageous. Kim Kardashian tweeted WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!
