It's pretty clear that HLN's Nancy Grace has thought Casey Anthony "Tot Mom" killed her 2-year-old daughter in 2008, regardless of the jury's acquittal yesterday on charges that she killed Caylee.

Even after the verdict was announced, Grace still relayed to CNN that she hadn't abandoned her beliefs:

"There is no way that this is a verdict that speaks the truth," she said.

But Anthony's defense attorneys weren't too happy after the verdict with Grace's coverage of events.

"Bias and prejudice and incompetent 'talking heads' saying what would be and how to be -- I'm disgusted by some of the lawyers that have done this," J. Cheney Mason told CNN. "I can tell you that my colleagues from coast to coast and border to border have condemned this whole process of lawyers getting on television and talking about cases they don't know a damned thing about."

Grace says Anthony will probably benefit off the verdict in the form of a book deal or made-for-TV movie, and she still stands behind her belief in Anthony's guilt.

"It's tough when you think about Caylee and you think about this evidence and you think about all those days that Tot Mom went about partying as if Caylee had never existed," she said.

Now, a lot of people playing armchair attorney and jury at home seem to be divided as to whether Casey Anthony is guilty, even after the verdict was read.

The timeline of Caylee Anthony's death still raises questions that have gone unanswered.

We want to hear from you: Was Nancy Grace right about Casey Anthony's guilt?
