A judge has denied requests from the mother of a missing Florida toddler to force investigators to turn over their photos, videos and drawings from the woods where a child's remains were found last week. Casey Anthony was charged in October with killing daughter Caylee Anthony, who was reported missing in July.

The remains have not been positively identified and autopsy results are expected within the next few weeks. An attorney said in court Tuesday that the remains were a little girl's, the first time anyone has confirmed the gender.

The judge on Tuesday also denied motions from Casey Anthony's attorneys to appoint a forensic expert and allow a second autopsy. Anthony's attorneys say they have concerns about how the remains are being preserved.
