ORLANDO, Fla. An attorney for a woman accused of killing her daughter has filed a motion seeking more information about his client's ex-boyfriend. The ex-boyfriend posted a picture on MySpace that showed a man and woman with the title "win her over with chloroform."

Jose Baez, an attorney for Casey Anthony, filed the motion late Friday afternoon. Someone also did a search for the word "chloroform" on a computer in a home where Anthony lived, and trace amounts were found in her car.

Baez wants prosecutors' information about ex-boyfriend Ricardo Morales, who was questioned by detectives at least twice.

Morales told detectives he posted the picture on his MySpace page around the beginning of 2008, before someone searched for "chloroform" Anthony's home computer.
