ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The mother of a 2-year-old missing Orlando
girl could be released from jail as early as today.
A bondsman posted bail Wednesday for Casey Anthony, who has been jailed on $500,200 bail since mid-July.
Police say Anthony lied to them and didn't report her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee, was missing for more than a month. She faces charges of child neglect, making false statements and obstructing
A hearing on those charges is scheduled for this morning.
Anthony told detectives she didn't immediately call authorities to report her child missing because she was conducting her own investigation, according to court papers.
