Pre-trial is December 11th.
Neither Casey Anthony nor her attorney was at Tuesday morning’s arraignment on murder charges Casey is facing in the death of her daughter, Caylee. Casey had already entered a written plea of not guilty, so she was not required to show up.
Judge Stan Strickland accepted the written plea and that means the state now has 15 days to hand over evidence to Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez, that the state plans to use in the trial against her. Any new evidence the state plans to make use of also must be handed over to Baez as they get it.
The state also asked the judge to move the trial period back from a previously set date in early February, possibly to put more pressure of the defense,. The judge agreed and Casey’s pre-trial conference is now set for December 11 and the trial is set for January 5.
