Casey Anthony case

Casey Anthony smiles Monday, March 2, 2009 as she meets a new lawyer on her defense team at the Orange County Courthouse.Today, a tentative date was set for Casey's trial -- Oct. 12. George and Cindy Anthony showed emotion after seeing their daughter Casey for the first time in many months. Casey attended the hearing but said little. Judge Stan Strickland said he will decide later if the public will get to see personal photos Casey Anthony posted on an online-picture sharing Web site. Casey's attorney Jose Baez told Orange Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland the photos should remain private because releasing them would hurt her defense. Anthony is charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie. RED HUBER, ORLANDO SENTINEL
