Jurors in the Casey Anthony trial listened Thursday to the woman's nearly hour-long interview with detectives the day after her 2-year-old daughter was reported missing in 2008.
Lead detective Yuri Melich took the stand again Thursday morning, on the eighth day of testimony in Anthony's murder trial. The Orlando woman is accused of killing her daughter Caylee.
Anthony told detectives Caylee had called her a day earlier, saying, "Hi, Mommy," before talking about books and shoes.
She also said during the interview that she would never be able to forgive herself.
"My mom flat out told me yesterday she will never be able to forgive me," Casey Anthony said.
As Melich and another detective peppered her with questions, Anthony said she asked the child to let her talk to an adult, but the phone went dead.
Anthony, 25, insisted she was not lying when she said a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee on June 9, 2008.
Detectives told Anthony she had lied about everything she had told them since they were called to her family's home the night before. The interview took place in an interview room at Universal Orlando, where Anthony claimed she worked.
On the day of the interview, detectives brought Anthony to Universal. Melich said she was very convincing as she tried talking her way into the employee entrance at the park, telling the security guard that she did not have her identification badge with her.
Universal's assistant manager of loss prevention, Leonard Turtora, testified earlier Thursday that he escorted Anthony into the park, even though he had already confirmed that she was no longer an employee.
Turtora and Melich testified that Anthony pointed to a building where she worked and led them into the office. Halfway down a hallway, she turned to them and said, "I don't work here."
That's when detectives asked for a room where they could talk. On the tape, Melich told Anthony he could not verify the information she provided the night before.
Earlier Thursday, an acquaintance of Anthony testified he never introduced Casey Anthony to the baby sitter. He and other witnesses during testimony have recounted what they say are lies Anthony told friends and law enforcement officers about what happened to her daughter and where she worked.
