ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Casey Anthony's father says he doesn't believe it's possible to reconnect with his acquitted daughter who he says should be held responsible for his 2-year-old granddaughter's death.
George Anthony told "Dr. Phil" host Phil McGraw that after being accused by his daughter's lawyers during her murder trial of molesting her, he doesn't think a relationship is in the offing.
He also said during a segment that aired Monday that he feels he was "played" by his daughter's lawyers.
Cindy Anthony, however, says she hopes the relationship between her and her daughter can be mended.
The Anthonys spoke with McGraw for a lengthy, taped interview that aired in three parts.
Cindy Anthony says she never believed the allegations against her husband, but wanted her daughter to be acquitted of murder.
