Casey Anthony's mother said in a recent television interview that her daughter's acquittal on murder charges was a sign from God. Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy, broke their silence in an interview aired Wednesday with television host Dr. Phil McGraw.
"I'm not going to be her judge and jury. God is her judge, and he let her free," Cindy Anthony told Dr. Phil.
Two- year-old Caylee Anthony was reported missing in July 2008. Five months later, her skeletal remains were found in a wooded area not far from the family's Orlando home.
"I prayed to God for three years to find out what happened to Caylee, and I prayed during the whole trial that God would give me closure and if Casey was responsible for Caylee's death, that Casey would go to jail and be punished," Cindy Anthony said.
Casey Anthony was acquitted in July of first-degree murder in her daughter's death. She was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts for lying to law enforcement officers during the investigation of Caylee’s death.
"And when that verdict came in and Casey was free, I got my answer-that it was an accident," Cindy Anthony said. "And I believe that justice for Caylee was when her mother walked."
Cindy also revealed her true feelings about Casey saying, "There is something seriously wrong with my daughter."
Casey Anthony has attempted to stay out of the spotlight since her release from jail.
