Judge asked to unseal Casey Anthony case documents

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A newspaper is asking a Florida judge to make public most of the sealed documents from the trial of Casey Anthony, who left jail last month after being acquitted of a murder charge in the death of her 2-year-old daughter.

The Orlando Sentinel filed a request today for all sealed documents except the jurors’ list. It said documents sought include a list of how defense attorneys spent about $200,000 before Anthony was declared indigent and taxpayers then footed her legal bills.

Anthony disappeared from public view after a jury acquitted her in the death of her daughter Caylee. But she may have to return to Orlando this week after a judge said Anthony must serve a year of probation involving check fraud charges in an unrelated case.
