New Casey Anthony defense tactics midstream?

Testimony was to resume Saturday in the intensely-watched Casey Anthony murder trial in Orlando, Fla.

A leading criminologist says she now thinks it’s highly unlikely Anthony will take the stand – because prosecutors would “eat her alive.”

On Friday, Day 27, attention was focused on dramatic testimony of her brother, Lee Anthony, who broke down in tears on the stand, as Casey cried from her seat.

She’s pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, and could face the death penalty if convicted on that charge.

Her lawyers say they could wrap up their case by Thursday.

Earlier Friday, it was Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony, who became emotional after being shown pictures of her getting into the family’s swimming pool with Caylee.

Casey’s attorneys claim the tot died when she accidentally drowned in the pool.

Prosecutors have sought to implicate Casey by saying she had researched possible murder techniques on the Internet.

But on Thursday, Cindy admitted that in March of 2008 she had searched online for the term “chloroform,” just a few months before her granddaughter went missing.

Under cross-examination, Cindy said her searches only went so far – not Googling how to make chloroform, any on Googling the term chloroform.

On “The Early Show on Saturday Morning,” criminologist Casey Jordan admitted she doesn’t know what Casey’s defense team is up to, adding, “I don’t know whether anybody knows. We’ve been waiting and waiting and for Lee to take the stand. Four weeks ago, we heard in opening statements allegations by (Casey lawyer) Jose Baez that Lee was sexually inappropriate, molested his sister. Of course, (Casey’s father) George was accused of the same, and already had the opportunity to deny it.

“When Lee was on the stand, we kept waiting for that question. And it never came. Instead, we get all of this emotional, this teary, ‘My family didn’t accept me, I was always excluded.’ We got a lot of emotions we weren’t expecting, and we didn’t get the confrontational direct examination we were thinking we would see.

Any idea why?
