In court documents that went public last month and were recently obtained by WFTS, Dominic Casey said Baez on July 28, 2008 told him “that Casey had murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere and, he needed all the help he could get to find the body before anyone else did.”

The bombshell court records also allege that Casey Anthony paid her lawyer with sex, and that the defense team tried to put Caylee’s killing on Roy Kronk, the meter reader who found her body in the woods near her grandparents’ home.

Dominic Casey resigned from the case in October of 2008, about three months after he was hired.

Baez denied the allegations, telling People Magazine in a written statement: “I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony … I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever.”

In 2011, a Florida jury found Casey Anthony not guilty in connection to the death of her daughter.
