Casey Anthony Prosecutor Writing Book About Case

Posted: Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. -- One of the prosecutors in the Casey Anthony murder trial is writing a book about the case.

Ashton was the co-prosecutor in the trial of Anthony, the young Florida mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The trial garnered national media attention.

Ashton gave an impassioned closing argument, saying that Anthony killed Caylee because the little girl interfered with her social and love life. He was criticized by the judge for laughing during defense attorney Jose Baez's closing argument and apologized.

Anthony was acquitted of killing her daughter and Ashton retired days later.
