Judge orders release of Casey Anthony tape


ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Florida judge Friday ordered the release of a grainy video showing Casey Anthony's reaction in 2008 to a news report saying the remains of her missing 2-year-old daughter Caylee had been found.

Ms. Anthony, 25, was acquitted in July of murdering Caylee, but the young mother was convicted of lying to investigators when she sent them searching for a nanny she claimed had kidnapped the child. There was no nanny.

Ms. Anthony was in jail in Orlando and indicted in Caylee's death when the child's remains were found on Dec. 11, 2008. Investigators had Ms. Anthony taken to the waiting room of the jail's medical unit so they could film her watching a news account.

In the video, Ms. Anthony stares at the television, then doubles over in her chair. Several times, she sat up, then doubled over again.
