Casey Anthony's Parents: Casey Overdosed Caylee, Helped Hide Her Body

Cindy and George Anthony, despite varying views on how their granddaughter died, have revealed during an interview on "Dr. Phil" that they believed their daughter, Casey Anthony, gave Caylee too much medication and helped hide the two-year-old girl's body.

Cindy told Dr. Phil McGraw she believed her granddaughter drowned, while George firmly maintained that Caylee was drugged and Casey knew more about the situation than she let on.

"I believe that Casey or someone else that she was with, possibly gave too much [medication] to Caylee, she fell asleep and didn't wake up. That's what I feel," stated George Anthony.

Cindy Anthony, however, acknowledged the possibility that Casey knew where Caylee was buried and might have helped place the 2-year-old's body there.

"I believe Casey knew or had knowledge of placing Caylee there," Cindy told McGraw. "...I'm not justifying what Casey did. But until I find out what happened to Caylee and what happened to Casey that day, I have to live with what I know."

George added, "I think (Casey) was there and she probably had some help."

Cindy and George Anthony broke their silence in a two-part interview with Dr. Phil McGraw, who confronted the couple about particular elements regarding the contentious murder trial of their daughter, who was acquitted in July of killing their granddaughter, Caylee.

"Dr. Phil" aired parts one and two of the interview on September 13th and 14th respectively, with a segment devoted to the murder trial of 25-year-old Casey Anthony to be aired later this month.

Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, on July 5, 2011, is currently serving her probation on a check fraud conviction in Orange County, Florida.

A judge is said to be deciding whether Anthony should be ordered to pay the $517,000 in restitution for the investigation to find Caylee.

Casey Anthony was not present at the last hearing to determine whether she will have to repay the costs. She is reportedly living in an undisclosed location to protect herself from people angry about her acquittal.
