CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Jury selection for the trial of Casey Anthony, who's accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, will take place in the Tampa area in Florida.
Court officials in Orlando didn't announce the location of jury selection in Pinellas County until early Monday because of intense media interest in the case of the young woman accused of killing her daughter Caylee. More than 600 media credentials have been requested for the trial.
At the center of the maelstrom is 25-year-old Anthony, who could face the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder. She has pleaded not guilty and says a babysitter kidnapped Caylee.
Jurors selected in the case will have to put their lives on hold for up to two months. They will be transported to Orlando and sequestered in a hotel.
