Need to Know News: Jurors continue deliberations in Casey Anthony trial; Indiana police to determine if body found in creek is missing student

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For July 5, 2011 – Jurors continue deliberations in Casey Anthony trial, Indiana police to determine if body found is that of missing student Lauren Spierer, sexual assault complaint to be filed against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Prince William and Catherine continue North America tour...

• Second day of deliberations in Casey Anthony trial: "Jurors in the Casey Anthony capital murder trial began a second day of deliberations Tuesday to determine if the 25-year-old Orlando woman is guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter."

• Indiana police to determine if body found in creek is missing student: "An autopsy Tuesday may shed some light on the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer. The autopsy will be conducted on a decomposing female body that was found in a creek Monday north of Indianapolis, CNN affiliates reported. Bloomington police have been searching for Spierer, 20, since June 2, when she was last seen leaving a sports bar in the city after a night out with friends."

• Brace for spending cuts in debt deal: "Huge spending cuts, and maybe some targeted tax hikes. That's how the deal to raise the debt ceiling is shaping up. Details are thin, as negotiations have been carried out behind closed doors and involve only a few of Washington's heaviest hitters."

• Sexual assault complaint to be filed against Strauss-Kahn in France: "A new accusation of attempted rape will be filed against former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn in France Tuesday as a separate case against him appears to be on shaky ground in New York. Writer Tristane Banon, 32, alleges that Strauss-Kahn attacked her eight years ago, her lawyer David Koubbi said, adding that he will file her complaint with French prosecutors Tuesday afternoon."

• Prince William, Catherine visit Northwest Territories on Canadian tour: "Prince William and his wife Catherine will make the northernmost stops of their Canadian tour Tuesday when they visit sites in the Northwest Territories. The couple will take part in customary aboriginal activities, including traditional drumming, dancing and sports, at Somba K'e Civic Plaza in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, on Tuesday morning."

    In the unfortunate event of an acquittal, is there a plan for Casey Anthony's exit stategy from the jail system and a plan for her future? Given the fact she lived at home with her parents and wasn't an autonomous individual, what can the future hold for her and her safety on the streets?
    Hopefully a full acquittal is not possible; however we've become such a society of "victims" anything is possible.

      who is the lady in the back ground of this picture with the baby talking and sippy cup on table. Is this zanny the nanny dwas she ever interviewed. She looks of a dark complextion. Could both sides be withholding evidence. He body languge does prove molestation and reason for attempted sucicide.I was just asking cause some things pertainning to not being honest came up in this state also. Im proud of the jurors verdict. It would make logical sense. Because thats what she admitted too. So they do believe her story and the father could be guilty. He could have attempted sucde because he knows that his way of going to hell also.

    It had to be negligence homicide. If the death of Caylee was premeditated, don't you think there would have been better burial plans? Why would she run to the neighbors to get a shovel? Why would she start in her own back yard? The burial preparation would have been much more strategized and not so haphazard!

    NOT GUILTY, are you kidding me! If I were Caseys parents, I would NOT let her move in with them....remember when she told her girlfriend she was going to be looking for roommates to live with her in her parents home.... was she going to kill them too?

    the men and women of the prosecutors office in the casy anthony case, the police, all investigators, the people who searched ,and anyone who was involved in this case, God Bless You All. the people who have watched this case, need to resist her ability to make any money for this MONSTER. WE know the TRUTH. and she will have to fae her maker in this case. A lie will not get her out of that. I pray that the baby in this caes will rest in peace and will visit her mothers mind each and everyday. I am sure that alot of people feel the same way. I wonder if casy will be welcom in the home of her father? I wonder if her parents will be filing a wronful death suit against their daughter?

    Mr. Morgan I do not hate Ms Anthony. I feel sorry for her and her whole family. We do not know wether she is guilty or not. The verdict is right. I agree with you Sir, the spectacle mounted around this case is pathetic and little different from the witch hunt of other eras or a public execution in some countries. I think we could and owe it to ourselves to be better than that in the USA.

    It is clear that as great as the justice system is, it is time to re-evaluate the jury system of this country. This is not the kind of decisions that jury is capable of making. There are lots of students that are studying law and can make a better and stronger decision than general ordinary layman. There are lots of students that need to pay their student loans and this will be a way for them to make their money to make educated decision. Something for the law makers to think about. All this high drama was as a result of a group of legally uneducated jurors deciding the future of a very ill person who needs to receive lots of love and treatment and not hyped freedom that can actually be more damaging to her and to everyone involved and to the American public and to all the children that need protection and support and not more permission for adults to abuse them. Jury was ignorant, was uneducated – legally, performed public service but not legal service and it is absolutely a flaw in our justice and legal system.
