Part 2: Caylee's grandparents break their silence

Posted by Nick Dutton - email

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The grandparents of slain Florida toddler Caylee Anthony say they are standing behind their daughter, who is jailed on a charge of killing the girl.

George and Cindy Anthony told "The Early Show" on CBS Wednesday that their daughter, Casey Anthony, was a great mother and wouldn't harm the little girl.

Prosecutors last week said they will seek the death penalty if the 23-year-old is convicted of first-degree murder.

The grandparents told CBS it is unlikely that Casey Anthony will accept any sort of plea deal. They said Casey would not admit to something she did not do.

The child's remains were found in woods in Orlando in December, six months after she disappeared.

Casey Anthony claimed that Caylee was kidnapped and has pleaded not guilty.
