Interviews describe Casey Anthony's state of mind

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Jail staff says a Florida woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter asked for sedatives when she found out a toddler's body was found in woods near her family's home.

Prosecutors on Monday released hours of interviews taped by detectives investigating the slaying of Caylee Anthony.

A jail supervisor says in one of the interviews the toddler's mother, Casey Anthony, asked jail medical staff for a sedative after learning of the December discovery of the remains. DNA tests later showed the remains belonged to the girl who'd been missing for six months.

Casey Anthony is set to stand trial in October on a first-degree murder charge. Casey Anthony claimed that Caylee was kidnapped and pleaded not guilty. Her attorney is planning to release a statement Monday.
