MORE: Casey Anthony trial

The lawyer for Casey Anthony's parents says they do not believe she is innocent in the killing of her 2-year-old daughter, CNN reports.

Anthony, 25, is on trial on a charge of first-degree murder in Orlando in the death of her daughter Caylee.

CNN correspondent Gary Tuchman reports Mark Lippman, lawyer for George and Cindy Anthony, told him they do not believe their daughter is innocent.

"But this is important, and they wanted me to stress this," says Tuchman. "They love her, they support her and they do not want her to get the death penalty, and they will do all they can to avoid her getting the death penalty in this case."

Prosecutors allege that Anthony suffocated Caylee, put her body in her car trunk and disposed of the remains.

Anthony's defense lawyer says Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool and Anthony and her father panicked and covered up the death. George Anthony rejected that assertion in court.

The defense case enters its seventh day today.

Correction at 9:02 a.m. ET: The original On Deadline posting of this story erroneously identified Mark Lipman as Casey Anthony's lawyer rather than her parent's lawyer.
