Casey Anthony Verdict Nearly Causes Nancy Grace’s Head to Explode (Video)

The long trial ends with the jury handing down a stunning verdict — and more fodder for the fiery HLN host

Last Updated: July 6, 2011 @ 10:13 AM

Casey Anthony was found not guilty on Tuesday of the 2008 murder of her daughter, Caylee, and Nancy Grace wasn't very happy about it.

Shortly after the verdict was read in the Florida courtroom, the oft-scowling Headline News host said, "The devil is dancing."

The controversial outcome provided a shocking capper to the riveting real-life courtroom drama that has consumed cable news since long before the trial began on May 24.

It also gave Grace, who has been following the Anthony case for more than two years and all but screaming for the accused Floridian's head, more fuel for her incessant coverage of what she has billed as the "Trial of the Century."

"I absolutely cannot believe that Caylee's death has gone unavenged," Grace growled in the minutes after the verdict was read. "Tot Mom will be walking free."

Anthony cried and smiled after hearing that she had been acquitted of murder, aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse, the three most serious charges in the case.

It barely seemed to register that she'd been found guilty of four counts of providing false information to a police officer, crimes that carry a combined maximum sentence of four years in county jail — maybe because that punishment would be nothing compared to the life sentence or death penalty the prosecution would likely have sought. 

"In the end, Tot Mom's lies seem to have worked," concluded Grace.

Anthony will be sentenced for the four lesser convictions on Thursday at 9 a.m. ET.

No doubt Nancy Grace will be on hand for that.
