State concludes its murder case against Casey Anthony.

The state of Florida rested its case in the murder trial of Casey Anthony.

Prosecutors introduced a final piece of evidence this morning before the judge dismissed the jury for the day.

The defense then filed a motion asking the judge to dismiss the charges claiming the case laid out by the prosecution was purely circumstantial.

Casey Anthony is accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008.

Attorneys for Anthony will begin presenting her defense Thursday.

Anthony is charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors said the toddler was suffocated with duct tape, while the defense claims she drowned in the family's swimming pool.
