(Newser) – Caylee Anthony’s grandparents angrily defended their daughter yesterday while giving depositions in a civil suit related to the 2-year-old’s disappearance, People reports. Cindy and George Anthony repeatedly threatened to walk out on the lawyers taking the depositions. "Until this day, I still believe that she's protecting Caylee and the family," Cindy Anthony said of Casey, 23.

"You guys have torn apart my family so much, every single one of you," said a furious George Anthony during his testimony. "You don't realize what you've done to us, and you don't care.” The deposition at an Orlando law office resulted from a defamation of character civil suit brought by Zenaida Gonzalez against Casey Anthony, the Sentinel reports. Anthony maintains that another Zenaida Gonzalez kidnapped her daughter.
