(CBS/WKMG/AP) ORLANDO, Fla. - The second day of the Casey Anthony murder trial began with the state calling Cameron Campana and Nathan Lezniewicz, two of her former boyfriend's roommates, to the stand.

Campana testified about his relationship with Anthony as the roommate of Tony Lazzaro, Anthony's boyfriend at the time that her daughter Caylee went missing in June 2008, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

He said he was under the impression Anthony was an event coordinator at Universal Studios, something her family also believed at the time. Detectives said they later learned that Anthony had not worked at Universal Studios for several years, reports the station.

Campana said he had seen Caylee, but when Anthony slept at his home, Caylee was never with her.

In 2008 Campana lived in Orlando and attended Full Sail University.

Next, the state called Nathan Lezniewicz, who lived on Lazarro's couch starting May 2008, reports WKMG.

Lezniewicz also testified about his relationship with Anthony and his interactions with Caylee. He said that he never saw Anthony upset, distraught or sad during the weeks that Caylee was missing, the station reports.

He testified about an evening in July when Anthony's mother came to his apartment and got into an argument with Anthony. He said her mother wanted Anthony to leave with her, but Anthony would not.

Earlier in the day there was a surprise recess due to a lost file for the defense. Judge Belvin Perry warned the attorneys, saying he would hold court on Sundays and have shorter lunch breaks if necessary to move things along in the trial.

Opening statements were given in court Tuesday, where the  prosecution asserted that Caylee was not kidnapped as Casey Anthony had claimed before, and that she is guilty of first-degree murder. The defense claimed that Caylee drowned in the family pool and that Casey Anthony had been sexually assaulted by her father. Later in the day, her father took the stand and denied the defense's allegations.

The Casey Anthony case was recently reported on by "48 Hours Mystery."
