ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Testimony has turned to a garbage bag found in Casey Anthony's car as the murder trial of the Florida mother charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter enters a phase full of forensics evidence.

Prosecutors called to the witness stand Tuesday a crime scene investigator who testified about a garbage bag found in Anthony's Pontiac Sunfire.

The bag is important since defense attorneys say a foul odor in the car came from the garbage, while prosecutors contend the smell was of human decomposition.

The toddler's skeletal remains were found in a wooded area not far from her grandparents' home in December 2008. Anthony has pleaded not guilty, and if convicted, she could be sentenced to death.
