ORLANDO, Fla. – Prosecutors have asked that the Florida mother charged with killing her daughter face check fraud charges before she goes on trial in the murder case.
Prosecutors filed a request Tuesday asking that Casey Anthony go on trial for the fraud charges within the next two months.
Anthony is charged with more than a dozen fraud charges, including fraudulent use of personal identification information, forgery of a check and uttering a forged check.
She also is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie. She has pleaded not guilty and says a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee.
Last month, attorneys said the murder trial won't likely happen until next year.
