Mom Of Missing Fla. Girl Indicted On Murder Charge

June 18, 2010 Updated Oct 14, 2008 at 5:38 PM EDT

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida grand jury has indicted the
mother of a missing 3-year-old girl on first-degree murder and
other charges.

Prosecutors say Casey Anthony was indicted today and arrested on charges that she killed her daughter Caylee. Investigators had
previously questioned why the 22-year-old mom didn't contact
authorities for a month after her daughter's June disappearance.

Anthony had previously been charged with child neglect, lying to
investigators and some unrelated fraud and theft counts.

A 19-member grand jury returned the indictment following
testimony Tuesday from Casey Anthony's father, a detective, a
cadaver dog handler and an FBI agent.
