Casey Anthony breaks silence in interview with Piers Morgan



ORLANDO, Fla. - On Tuesday night, Casey Anthony talked to CNN's Piers Morgan over the phone with her attorney, Cheney Mason, about her life before and after the trial.

It's been nearly a year since Casey was acquitted of murdering her daughter Caylee and she's been in hiding ever since.

Morgan did not record the phone interview with Anthony but he aired her quotes including:

"I didn't kill my daughter but I'm ashamed of the person that I was."

The call was made on Mason's cellphone Tuesday night. Piers and Mason then discussed the conversation.

"If she didn't kill her girl who did? Have you formed any opinion about that?" asked Morgan.

"Well, I don't think anybody killed her. That term implies an intentional act. The child obviously died," replied Mason.

Morgan said Anthony told him, "I was a stupid kid but I've never been a party girl." She also said, "I've gone through hell."

Anthony told Morgan she's had a handful of beers while on probation, which does not violate her probation. She's not supposed to drink excessively.

She also told Morgan in a 10-minute phone call, "The public perception of me is bad, absolutely horrible."

Anthony is in isolation, although Mason wouldn't say where. He did say she was reading books and likes "The Hunger Games," which Morgan pointed out deals with young people fighting to the death.

Anthony also told Morgan, "There's no one I love more than my daughter. She's my greatest accomplishment."

Mason told Morgan that Anthony will talk with other media at a later date.
