(AP) - The mother of a Florida woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter is on the stand, testifying in her daughter's trial.

Cindy Anthony described the layout of the family home Saturday during testimony. She became emotional when she described a playhouse built for 2-year-old Caylee, and when prosecutors showed a picture of Caylee's bed.

Casey Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the toddler's summer 2008 death. Prosecutors contend the 25-year-old mother suffocated Caylee with duct tape.

Anthony's defense team says the child drowned accidentally in a family pool. If convicted, she could be sentenced to death.

Casey's father, George Anthony, testified for the third time in four days Friday.
