Florida mother accused of killing daughter Caylee, 2, misses court after fall in shackles

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida mother charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter missed a court hearing after she suffered some minor injuries in a fall at an Orlando courthouse.

Twenty-four-year-old Casey Anthony fell when her hand and leg restraints became entangled. She fell forward, and officers escorting her were unable to stop her fall.

Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and has said a baby sitter kidnapped her daughter, Caylee. Her trial is set to start next May.

The hearing went on without her. Her attorneys asked the judge to reconsider making her eligible for the death penalty, but the judge refused. The judge will rule later on a request to seal records of Anthony's visitors in jail.
