A major development in the case against Casey Anthony Wednesday as Judge Stan Strickland set a trial date for the first degree murder charges. It
is now set for May 2nd, 2011. That’s about a year after the trial was
first supposed to start. There’s no word yet where it will take place. Prosecutors
also filed a new motion asking the judge for a private closed-door
meeting without the defense attorneys. Prosecutors say they have new
material and information from investigators regarding the case that
they don’t want to go be disclosed to the public. Anthony has
pleaded not guilty on charges that she killed her daughter, 2-year-old
Caylee Marie, claiming a babysitter kidnapped her toddler. Caylee was
last seen in June of 2008, but she was not reported missing until a
month later. Her remains were found in woods near the family's home in December 11, 2008.

ORLANDO, Fla. --

Lawyers in the trial of Casey Anthony have filed two new motions.In
what defense lawyers are calling a rare request, prosecutors have asked
to meet behind closed doors with Judge Stan Strickland.In the
motion, the assistant state attorney said the team wants more time to
go over new materials and information that has come into the hands of
law enforcement. Prosecutors said they want to meet with the judge and
ask to delay turning that information over to the defense.Attorney
Richard Hornsby said the state needs to determine how the materials
affect the murder case against Anthony. If the information is coming
from a new witness, he said the state needs more time to prevent the
defense from discrediting or scaring away that person from testifying.Lawyers
have also filed a timeline for the case, which may push the trial back
to May 2011. Under the timeline, prosecutors must depose their
witnesses by the end of August, while the defense has until Halloween
to list who it will call as witnesses.The defense will have
until January to depose their witnesses. Lawyers must also show why the
case is being delayed if the deadlines can't be met.As of Wednesday, Anthony has been in jail for 421 days.
