Prosecutor Jeff Ashton would not comment about the deposition.
An Orlando defense attorney said Kronk's ex is not going to be able to slam her ex-husband in trial and using her could backfire on Anthony's defense. "I'm willing to bet she's not going to make a good witness," Richard Hornsby said.
The video of Jill Kerley was taken by the defense team's private investigator and was not under oath.
Hornsby said it's only real value is in the court of public opinion.

Ex-wife of meter reader who found Caylee Anthony’s remains slated to be questioned today
Jill Kerley was to be questioned by prosecutors in the first-degree murder case against Casey Anthony
1:28 p.m. EST, February 25, 2010
The ex-wife of the Orange County meter reader who found Caylee Marie Anthony's remains was scheduled to be questioned under oath this morning.
Prosecutors handling the first-degree murder case against Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, were supposed to question Jill Kerley, who lives in Tennessee, at 10:30 a.m., according to a notice filed in Orange County Circuit Court earlier this month.
The state's notice said the deposition time was reserved for three hours. Kerley was to report to an attorney's office in Knoxville.
It's unclear if the deposition occurred and concluded. A call to Kerley's attorney was not immediately returned, and a State Attorney's Office spokeswoman could not provide details since depositions are not public.
Kronk's Ex-Wife Questioned By Prosecutors

The ex-wife of the former Orange County meter reader who found Caylee's remains was questioned Thursday by prosecutors. Jill Kerley's deposition was taken via Skype from her attorney's office in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Casey's defense team has said Kerley's testimony will prove her ex-husband, Roy Kronk, should be a suspect in Caylee's murder. She claims Kronk bound her with duct tape while they were married.
A judge will view Kerley's testimony and decide whether it's relevant to the case.

What were prosecutors trying to do with today’s deposition?
“They’re going to try to get her [Kerley] under oath to catch her in lies,” said Orlando attorney Richard Hornsby in offering analysis for WESH. “I’m willing to bet she’s not going to make a very good witness.”
Hornsby noted that Kerley wouldn’t be able to offer her personal opinions in the Anthony murder trial. He also questioned the defense team’s strategy of using Kerley, saying jurors would “assume she has an ax to grind, that she’s bitter.”
