Mother of missing Fla. toddler arrested again

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - August 21, 2008 The Orange County Sheriff's Office says in a news release they arrested Casey Anthony at her home Friday night in central Florida. Anthony is the mother of a 3-year-old daughter named Caylee, who has been missing since mid-June.

The 22-year-old mother posted a $500,000 bond with the help of a bounty hunter and got out of jail last week. Authorities didn't immediately say why she was taken back into custody but are planning a news conference Friday.

Anthony faces charges of child neglect, making false statements and obstructing the investigation into her child's disappearance. Authorities say she didn't report her child missing until July, weeks after the 3-year-old was last seen by relatives.
