Mom of missing Fla. girl indicted on murder charge

ORLANDO, Fla. - October 14, 2008 - Prosecutors say Casey Anthony was indicted Tuesday 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.
