No 2nd autopsy for child remains

ORLANDO, Fla. - December 16, 2008 - /*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.
