    Keep your “she gets away with murder” quips to yourself. A Florida appellate court has tossed out two of the four convictions Casey Anthony faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her 2-year-old daughter’s disappearance. Anthony’s attorneys called double jeopardy on two of the charges, arguing that she had been unfairly convicted more than once for the same crime, and the judges overturned the convictions.
