Casey Anthony’s defense team interrogated a witness late Tuesday afternoon. Jail Sergeant 58-year-old Dennis Moonsammy was questioned by her attorney, Jose Baez.
Moonsammy supervises Casey Anthony at the jail, and told Eyewitness News he did not see Casey’s response the day Caylee’s remains were found.
“Did you see Casey Anthonys reaction when they found her daughter’s remains?” asked WFTV reporter Jeff Deal.
“No sir. No sir,” responded Moonsammy.
The veteran Orange County corrections sergeant headed into the State Attorney’s Office to answer questions under oath from Casey Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez.
“Every witness is critical,” said Baez.
Moonsammy is a shift sergeant who oversees the Women’s Detention Center at the Orange County Jail. He is the first of four corrections officers who will be deposed this week in the Casey Anthony criminal trial.
While he says he didn’t see Casey’s reaction, it is possible someone else described it too him.
Eyewitness News has learned she hyperventilated and asked for medication when she heard that Caylee’s remains had been found.
Moonsammy said he had a lawyer with him during the questioning.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” said Moonsammy.
Jose Baez said he believes the depositions he has lined up this week are a serious part of this case.
“It’s a life changing situation so I think every part of it is,” said Baez.
Casey Anthony’s defense team will have to wait two more days to interrogate other key players in the murder case.
Jose Baez was going to depose former Anthony family private investigator Jim Hoover and several Orange County Sheriff’s Office investigators Tuesday, but those depositions have been delayed until Thursday.
Four jail officers will also be questioned. Two of those jailers witnessed Casey’s reaction when she was told about the discovery of Caylee’s remains.
