Casey Anthony vs. O.J. Simpson: Which Not Guilty Verdict Was More Shocking?

During the 35-day trial, concluding with 10-plus hours of deliberations, rampant speculation mounted that the Florida mother Casey Anthony accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee would indeed be convicted of first-degree murder – and perhaps even to face the death penalty.

But on Tuesday afternoon, the jury delivered a not guilty verdict as millions watched on TV and online.

The surprising decision was reminiscent of another acquittal in a high-profile murder case: that of O.J. Simpson.

In 1995, jurors deliberated for about four hours before returning a famously surprising not guilty verdict in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
