ORLANDO, Fla. — A judge has ruled that a Florida mother charged with killing her toddler must attend her pretrial hearings.
The Orlando judge ruled Thursday that Casey Anthony must be at all hearings except scheduling and trial status hearings. The next one is scheduled for Friday morning.
Her defense attorney had objected, citing the media frenzy it causes each time Casey Anthony is in a courtroom. The attorney says Anthony signed a form waiving the requirement that she be in court during the hearings.
Anthony is charged with killing her daughter, Caylee, who was 2 when she disappeared last summer.
