Very little is known about Casey Anthony's brother Lee following her headline-making trial in 2011.

Six years ago, Lee took the stand against his sister, and claimed she was keeping daughter Caylee from the family because she was a "spiteful b---h." He also described the smell of Casey's car as "offensive" on the witness stand, seemingly pointing the finger at his little sister.

As expected, following Casey's acquittal, the siblings have remained estranged, but some important details about Lee have surfaced during and since the highly publicized trial came to an end.

Here are five things to know about Lee:

He was not invited to Caylee's birth

Lee was not at the hospital when his niece was born, after having discovered Casey was hiding her pregnancy from him.

"I was angry,” he said at the time. “I didn’t want to be there... They didn’t want to include me.”

Lee originally owned the car where Caylee's body was allegedly placed

Casey's older brother initially drove the infamous white Pontiac Sunfire that had stains in the trunk where prosecutors believed Caylee's body was transported. However, he denied the allegations, claiming the stains were there when the car was purchased in 2000.

Lee was accused of sexually abusing Casey

In attorney Jose Baez's opening statements, he accused Lee and Casey's father, George Anthony, of molesting the defendant.

Casey's former fiancé, Jesse Grund, also claimed that she was "groped" by her brother, saying, "She told me that at one point in recent years that she woke up one night with Lee standing up over her."

DNA results proved neither Lee nor George fathered Caylee.
