CLEARWATER, Fla. -- An Orlando woman charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter fought tears as the accusations against her were read to prospective jurors.

Judge Belvin Perry began the third day of jury selection by reading the charging documents to a new panel of 50 prospective jurors. The chief judge for the circuit that includes Orlando dismissed 50 prospects Tuesday because several of them were discussing the case in a jury holding room.

Casey Anthony lowered her head and wiped her eyes as the indictment was read Wednesday. She is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 death of daughter Caylee.

Jury selection is being held outside Orlando because of intense media coverage.
