ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Court documents show the mother of a missing toddler wanted to give her unborn child up for adoption.
Documents released by prosecutors on Monday show Casey Anthony's mother insisted that she keep 3-year-old Caylee, who went missing in June.
Anthony was released from jail on $500,000 bail last week and returned to her parents' home. She faces charges of child neglect, making false statements and obstructing an investigation into her daughter's disappearance.
Anthony told investigators she left Caylee in an apartment with a nanny June 9. But investigators say the apartment had been empty for several months. She told detectives she didn't immediately call authorities to report Caylee missing because she was conducting her own investigation.
