    Casey Anthony's defense team hires new media rep

    Casey Anthony's defense team has hired a new media representative and dumped a spokesman who used an alias.
    Marti Mackenzie is already known to lawyers and reporters. She has more than 20 years of experience in legal cases with high-profile defendants, including former astronaut Lisa Nowak.
    In her new job, Mackenzie will speak for lawyer Jose Baez in his defense of Anthony, who is charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

    "It's time to refocus on legal issues," Mackenzie said Wednesday. "My role is to free up the defense lawyers so they can do that."
    Veteran lawyer Cheney Mason -- who has been critical of the defense team for Casey Anthony -- has hired Mackenzie in the past and was relieved to see her join Baez's team.
    "She will help them avoid making more and more public mistakes," he said.

    Cremated Caylee Remains Not Kept At Home Over Theft Fears
    Girl's Grandparents Plan To Build Memorial For Slain Toddler

    The cremated remains of Caylee Anthony are not being kept at her grandparents' east Orange County home because of fears that somebody may try to steal them.
    Brad Conway, the attorney representing Caylee's grandparents, George and Cindy Anthony, said on Wednesday that the remains are not at the home, but he would not say where they are being kept.
    Conway said the decision to cremate Caylee was not made lightly by George and Cindy Anthony, who were concerned that a headstone would be a target for vandals. They plan to build a permanent memorial for Caylee, perhaps at a park.

    Jose Baez's former media rep won't go away

    Press Corps Media sent an e-mail and a fax to reporters today, saying the company was still involved in the Casey Anthony case. In fact, the third-party who is paying for two staff members has extended its contract and paid for 19 more months.
    This comes the day after Baez confirmed he is no longer associated with Press Corps Media and has hired veteran media representative Marti Mackenzie, who has handled several high profile cases and worked with local attorneys, to represent his law firm.

    "The only thing that's been 'dumped' is prepayment of our services into our trust account, and those services will be rendered when asked per our non-refundable contract," Sabrina Cane, a Press Corps Media worker, e-mailed the Orlando Sentinel. "Given the many surprises already experienced in this case, Press Corps Media will do what it has been paid to do - assist in Ms. Anthony's defense on media coverage."
    Mackenzie said this afternoon that she has never encountered a situation like this before when a previous media firm refuses to let go after a client has made his intentions clear.
