Yes, they are.
But this jury is sequestered and the judge wants to get them home as soon as possible.

So how long until we get a verdict? I'm going with Wednesday afternoon.

Yes, but they're dealing with a sequestered jury. The jurors are held prisoner until a verdict is rendered (or the jury is hung) so they can't exactly take weekends and holidays off. So they'll work on holidays and weekends in order to get it over with as soon as possible.

They asked to work on Memorial Day, but the judge would not let them, a lot of the people said that they had vacation plans made, and one woman has plans to go to England. The judge has been very protective of the jury and seems to have tried to make them as happy as possible.

Dan Abrams says the 'unofficial' length is one hour for every day there was testimony. But, he also said that Florida and Texas seem to have shorter deliberations. So, who knows.
They may already have a verdict and may want to sleep on it.

Listen to the ME testify in the background. Watch both BAEZ and Casey.
The ME is speaking about the remains of her dead daughter. It's interesting that when pictures of her dead daughter are shown in front of the jury, she's all teary eyed and can't look, but during this hearing w/o a jury she's all smiley and flirty ... while there is discussion about her dead daughter.
The ME wasn't testifying at the time. The uploader added the audio from an earlier press conference for effect. It's in the description.

You find YOUR DAUGHTER floating in the pool and you don't start screaming?
I'm supposed to believe that her father convinced her to go along with him and get rid of her body? Why? He'd rather face DEATH IN PRISON before facing the wrath of Cindy? Please.
I agree completely. Throughout the trial I kept expecting the defense to explain why George would have reacted in such an illogical way, and they never did.

Every time Cindy asked about Caylee, Casey had an excuse.
As I mentioned earlier, during the 30 days, Cindy and George were away .. not sure if it was for a week or two weeks.
Yes, I realized those things when I made my comment. All three: George, Cindy, Casey have been proven to be liars (I'd consider them pathological)... I do not believe that any of them are telling the truth of what happened over those 30 days.

I'm still struggling to figure out why this is national news, at the exclusion of almost everything else.

I think it's more than just that. The circumstances around this case are pretty interesting/weird. It's not just some chick possibly killing her kid - it's not reporting it after 30 days, partying during that time, and the mountain of lies from her and her family (ie. the nanny, the google search, job, etc).

I'm not saying it deserves as much attention as it's getting, but this isn't just your standard run-of-the-mill case in which the mother killed her kid.

She'll get something, but not the death penalty. It's too unclear what happened.

If she is found guilty on all charges, I think the jry has a 48-hour break then has to decide to recommend life or death, comes down to the judge on that.

Re: Child's body found near Caylee Anthony's home

With the jury coming back this quickly I would be shocked if they went with a lesser offense, so I think it's either guilty of first degree murder or an outright not guilty. I'm going with guilty.

Re: Child's body found near Caylee Anthony's home

Each time I am sure these huge cases are obviously guilty the jury comes back with a Not Guilty. Here's hopin' this one goes the right direction...
