ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The mother of a missing Florida toddler is getting out of jail again.
Orange County officials confirmed that Casey Anthony has posted $500,000 bond for the second time and should leave jail by Friday morning. She is charged with child abuse and making false statements to investigators.
Her daughter, 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, was reported missing in mid-July from Orlando. The girl hadn't been seen for a month before Anthony told authorities.
Detectives have said Anthony's trunk had contained a decomposing body and that it was likely her daughter's. However, no other charges have been filed against Anthony.
Prosecutors asked for a high bond, hoping Anthony wouldn't be able to get out.
