More evidence to be released in Casey Anthony case

Hundreds of pages of more evidence in the first-degree murder case against Casey Anthony have been released to her defense team, according to a notice filed Friday in Orange County Circuit Court.

State prosecutors listed 19 items — mostly CDs and a few DVDs — that were released to Casey Anthony's defense as part of the discovery process.

The items released include interviews, photos and transcripts. The notice states there are enhanced photos from the FBI of the trunk of Casey Anthony's vehicle.

The evidence can eventually be released to the public under Florida's public records law, but has not yet been turned over to the media.

Also on Friday, the Orlando lawyer for Texas EquuSearch, a volunteer group that helped search for Caylee Anthony, filed court documents related to the group's search for missing toddler.

Casey Anthony's defense team has asked that EquuSearch make available its files on the volunteers who aided in the searches. More than 4,000 documents have already been made available to prosecutors and the defense to review.

The organization's director, Tim Miller, found more information about searchers who helped look for Caylee. None of the new information appears to link any searchers to the site where her remains were found in Dec. 2008.

Casey Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter and is being held without bond at the Orange County Jail.
