(Newser) – Casey Anthony's murder trial went into day four today. Some highlights from the Orlando Sentinel:

  • The manager of the tow yard where Anthony's car went said it stunk of human decomposition. "It's a very, very unique and distinctive smell," he said. The vehicle had been there for several days when he came across it.

  • Prosecutors showed several videos of Anthony shopping to reinforce the point that she went about life as normal when her girl was missing or already dead. (Previous testimony did the same.)
  • An acquaintance broke down describing Casey and Caylee. Their relationship "was amazing," said Mallory Parker. "Casey and Caylee had a very special bond." Anthony began crying, too.
  • The judge again denied a defense request for a mistrial.
