Deputies again arrest mother of missing Florida girl

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The mother of a missing Florida toddler is back in jail.

Sheriff's deputies say Casey Anthony was arrested for a third time Monday while visiting her case manager. The new charges relate to alleged theft from a friend.

The 22-year-old has been in and out of custody since 3-year-old Caylee Anthony was reported missing in mid-July.

She hasn't been charged in Caylee's disappearance, though detectives say lab tests show Caylee's decomposing body was in Anthony's car.

Anthony is charged with child neglect and making false statements. She's also been charged twice with check theft.

Anthony's spokesman says authorities are just grandstanding.

Anthony's neighbors, meanwhile, are asking a judge to keep protesters, supporters and media away from their homes.
