LOS ANGELES — George Anthony says he would turn daughter Casey Anthony away if she tried to come home.
Asked in an interview with “Dr. Phil” host Phil McGraw if Casey would be welcome at his Orlando, Fla., house, George Anthony replied: “Not while I was there, no.”
Casey Anthony was acquitted in July of the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
In the defense’s opening statement at Casey’s trial, her attorney accused her father of molesting Casey as a child, claims that were never backed up and which George Anthony has vehemently denied.
Anthony and his wife, Cindy, spoke to McGraw for an interview airing Tuesday and Wednesday on the syndicated TV program and on another “Dr. Phil” show later this month.
