Verdict reached in Casey Anthony trial

The jury has reached a verdict in the murder trial of Casey Anthony, who is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

Judge Belvin Perry says he will read the verdict at 1:15 p.m. this afternoon. The Florida jury deliberated for more than 10 hours.

If convicted of first-degree murder, the 25-year-old Anthony could get a death sentence. She could also be acquitted or convicted of second-degree murder or manslaughter.

She is also charged with lying to sheriff's detectives investigating her daughter's 2008 disappearance.
