Casey Anthony's father breaks down on the stand

ORLANDO, FL (WFLX)  Casey Anthony's father has broken down crying while describing his emotions when he learned that granddaughter Caylee's remains had been found in a wooded area near his Orlando home.

George Anthony testified again Wednesday in the murder trial of his daughter. Court was adjourned so the former police officer could compose himself.

His wife also returned to the witness stand earlier Wednesday.

The defense attorneys have continued their strategy of painting the Anthony family as dysfunctional.

Casey Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Caylee's death and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge.

The prosecution contends she used duct tape to suffocate the toddler. The defense says the girl drowned in her grandparents' swimming pool.
