Attorneys settled today on four more prospective jurors on the sixth consecutive day of jury selection in the first-degree murder case against Casey Anthony.

Judge Belvin Perry Jr. said at the end of the first session in a Pinellas County courtroom today that once attorneys agree on 15 total potential jurors, he hopes to move toward getting the trial under way. Twelve prospective jurors have been chosen.

"Fifteen is the number where once I hit that magic number, that's when I'm going to start swearing them in," Perry said.

As the afternoon session began, Casey Anthony herself remained attentive to the proceedings.

Juror 1407, a young man with long, shoulder-length dark hair and a thin build, was chosen as the ninth potential juror during the morning session. He attracted the interest of Casey Anthony herself, who watched him as he answered questions.

The juror, who is 22, lives at home with his mother and is an atheist. He is training to be a mechanic. He supports the death penalty for the right circumstances, he said.

He also said he generally avoids the news because "it's all awful." Still, despite that, he says he has no doubt he could serve on this jury.

Defense attorney Jose Baez tried to have him removed for cause in part because he misrepresented his criminal history on his juror questionnaire. But Judge Perry denied the request, and Baez chose not to use a peremptory challenge to remove him from the panel at this time.

The second potential juror chosen today was juror 1251.

She told the judge and attorneys that she had a conversation with her daughter earlier this week. The daughter figured out which case she was being considered for, and told her, "Mom, that going to change your life."

She told her daughter, "Well, I don't know...All we can do is wait and see."

She said she does not think publicity, a book, or media interviews would influence her decision on whether Casey Anthony should live or die.

The third juror chosen today was juror 1429, a retired woman who said she enjoys going to the gym and gardening. She also said she did not really have an opinion about the death penalty.

The fourth juror chosen today, No. 1119, is a truck-driving, married father of two in his 40s. He said he had thought Anthony to be guilty before hearing Perry's Monday instructions about how jurors should consider the trial.

He also said he actually did not want to be chosen for the jury because it would mean that he would be away from his family.

The judge and attorneys questioned several other people who were dismissed today.

Juror No. 1167 was dismissed after he admitted that he was totally opposed to capital punishment. He said he "physically would not be able to" find her guilty of first degree murder out of concern it might lead to Casey Anthony being put to death.

Perry thanked the man for his candor.
The first juror called this morning was number 1123, a middle aged white male. He said his son is graduating from high school, and he has a fishing trip planned in the Keys coming up. If he had to serve, he would miss those events. But then he said he also paid attention to this case in the news.

"I really, like, have already formed an opinion...I hate to say it, I think she's guilty," he said

"Can you lay aside that opinion sir?" Judge Belvin Perry asked.

"I don't think so, sir," he said.Juror 1050, another white middle aged male, also said he has formed an opinion that she is guilty and said he cannot lay aside that opinion either.

Juror 1392 has heard about the case, but has few details. He recalled seeing the case mentioned on Nancy Grace, but said much of what she does is opinionated and "foolishness." He was excused for cause after the prosecution said he violated the court's order about electronic communications because of posts he made about jury duty on Facebook.

Juror 1394, a middle-aged white woman, said she had heard about the case and recalled that Casey Anthony was somehow involved with the murder of her of her daughter. She said she had lost a child in a car crash and had an opinion about the Anthony case.

"I believe to lose a child is the worst thing this earth has to serve on anyone," she said.

The woman said she did not think she could be fair and objective to a parent who did not participate in a law-enforcement investigation of the death of the parent's child.

"I would see that as guilt by omission," she said.

She was excused.

Another juror, No. 1361, was dismissed because of financial hardship.

Juror 1001, a young man, was dismissed after the state challenged him because prosecuting attorneys said they thought he was biased against law enforcement based on something he had written on Twitter about Florida police officers being useless. The juror said he had been angry after his car was damaged in a small crash.

Anthony, 25, is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, in the summer of 2008.

Because of the pre-trial publicity surrounding Anthony's case, Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry chose to seat a jury in Pinellas. Once a panel is chosen, the jury will be brought to Orange County, where the trial will unfold.

Perry was hoping to have a 20-member jury seated — 12 jurors and eight alternates — in time to have opening statements Tuesday in Orlando.
