No decision in Casey Anthony appeal

The appeal of Casey Anthony’s guilty conviction of lying to law enforcement wrapped up before the district court of appeals Tuesday afternoon with no decision.

Her defense team hopes to get the four counts thrown out.

In the hearing, District Judge Vincent Torpy Jr. wanted to know if Anthony was in custody when questioned regarding her daughters disappearance, calling the questioning a "classic, textbook interrogation" as the state defended its actions.

"The initial focus of the interview," explained Assistant Attorney General Wesley Heidt, "Is on 'why is your story not adding up, where's Caylee?'"

Anthony's attorneys say police improperly interviewed their client.

"It doesn't matter based under Miranda, what the questioning is, it's the coercive environment of the questioning," argued defense attorney Lisabeth Fryer.

It's not known when the ruling from the three panel appellate judges will come down.
