(Newser) – Florida residents still seething over the Casey Anthony verdict may want to avert their eyes: They're still paying the tab for her defense. Anthony's legal team has billed the state $147,018 in expenses so far, reports the Orlando Sentinel. This particular sum doesn't include lawyer salaries, notes ABC News. Instead it covers the cost of things such as bringing in expert witnesses to cast doubt on the state's case. Florida has paid $118,000 of the tab so far.
