ORLANDO, Fla., June 24 (UPI) -- Lee Anthony wept Friday as he testified at his sister's Florida trial for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

He told jurors he felt like his mother and sister had excluded him when she became pregnant and that he did not visit Casey Anthony in the hospital after she gave birth because of his anger, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

"I was very angry at my mom. I was also angry at my sister -- that they didn't want to include me and didn't find it important enough to tell me," Lee Anthony said.

Lee, a defense witness, also testified about the car he gave his sister -- a car that is critical to the prosecution case. He said he could not remember if the trunk was stained when he gave Casey the Pontiac Sunfire.

Prosecutors maintain the stains were made by Caylee's body.

Cindy Anthony, who was called as a defense witness Thursday, returned testified again Friday as the proceedings opened for the day.

On Thursday, she said she did an Internet search for chloroform on the family computer. Prosecutors say Casey Anthony did the search and that it is evidence she planned to kill her daughter.

The defense says Caylee drowned accidentally in the family swimming pool on June 16, 2008, and that George Anthony pressured his daughter into hiding the body.
