Hundreds of pages of documents due out on Friday

On Thursday, the defense filed a motion claiming that those conditions are too vague and says the State did not list any facts backing up their case. Anthony's attorneys are also asking for more detailed evidence from a Tennessee forensics laboratory.
On Friday, more potential evidence is expected to be released. A spokesperson for the State Attorney's Office said up to 500 pages of documents are included, some of which will be lab results.

Perry Schedules Next Hearing For June 1

Some of the pages dealt with what prosecutors are working to determine to prove their theory that duct tape on Caylee Anthony's mouth was indeed the murder weapon. In an e-mail between FBI analysts, they discuss why prosecutors are so interested in the length and width of the duct tape, as well as high-tech plans they have to show the tape used in Caylee's death.
In an e-mail dated in February 2009, an FBI analyst said, "They want to know if it would be possible for the tape as it was to cover both the mouth and nose areas." The e-mail continued and said prosecutors would need scale measurements of the tape "to do some computerized re-creation images of the skull with the tape." Also included in the documents was an inventory from the Suburban Drive crime scene that detailed how flags placed at the scene marked a myriad of body parts, including teeth and bones from the leg and ribs.
In newer documents released on Friday, prosecutors said they've submitted secret letters Anthony wrote to fellow inmate Robyn Adams to an FBI laboratory for analysis. Detectives also submitted notebooks containing her known writing samples for comparison. The prosecution wants to confirm the letters were written by her.
On Friday, Judge Belvin Perry also scheduled a hearing for June 1. The hearing will deal with two issues that include a defense motion to seal jail visitation logs and a motion to reconsider certain prior rulings by Judge Stan Strickland.

UPDATED: Casey Anthony case: More documents released by state today
An additional 500 pages of evidence related to the state's murder case against Casey Anthony released today.
9:50 a.m. EDT, May 21, 2010
The records include various inventory lists of DNA evidence and other material found at the site where the remains of Anthony's daughter, Caylee, were found.
Documents also include information on various lab technicians who examined items collected.
The Orlando Sentinel is in the process of reviewing the pages.
This is the latest in a handful of developments in the case this week. Her defense team filed paperwork earlier this week to get more details from prosecutors as to why the state is seeking the death penalty against the 24-year-old mother accused of killing her daughter.

The documents show that the state sent the handwritten letters from Anthony to another inmate in the Orange County Jail to the FBI to be analyzed.
Every page and envelopes is included in the lab's inventory sheets. They are being compared to known samples of Anthony's handwriting, like a letter she wrote to Sheriff Kevin Beary a few months after her arrest.
The state also handed over information about the forensic experts who are conducting the tests, including how many times they have testified in court, in which cases and the outcome of those cases.

Exhaustive efforts were used after Caylee Anthony was reported missing. Now we're learning the same type of determination and attention to detail were used after her remains were found.
In the Case against Casey, the state is trying to show the evidence traces back to Anthony. In e-mail communications released, FBI technicians focus in on the trunk of Anthony's car. Investigators are also trying to link clothing found at the crime scene to Target, and then link that to Anthony. One of the theories prosecutors have leaked in court is that Caylee died because duct tape covered her mouth.
The case will be back in court on June 1. When Judge Stan Strickland took himself off the case, any motion he ruled on could be brought back up for review. June 1 is the defense’s day to try these motions again. The defense will explain why they say we shouldn't know who is coming to visit Anthony in jail and want the logs kept private.

UPDATED: More Casey Anthony discovery released

Prosecutors in the murder trial of Casey Anthony have offered five factors in why they believe she deserves the death penalty. On Thursday, the defense filed a motion claiming that those conditions are too vague and says the State did not list any facts backing up their case. Anthony's attorneys are also asking for more detailed evidence from a Tennessee forensics laboratory. Tests from that lab concluded that air samples taken from inside Casey's car had indicated signs of decomposition.
More potential evidence was released Friday. FOX 35 Reporter Holly Bristow will have a full report today during FOX 35 News at 5 and 6PM.

UPDATED: 586 Pages Of Evidence Released In Casey Case
Posted: 9:50 am EDT May 21, 2010
Updated: 6:46 pm EDT May 21, 2010
Prosecutors in the case against Casey Anthony released 586 pages Friday morning that contain FBI evidence and emails. The documents also contain information about evidence found in the trunk of Casey’s car. With mountains of evidence stacking against Casey Anthony, her lawyers are now trying to discredit some of it. WFTV looked through the 586 pages of newly-released evidence Friday.
The defense could use some of the FBI communications exchanged behind the scenes during the investigation to try to expose problems with the work. But investigators are being up front about it, which could diffuse any defense arguments. Photos of some unspecified piece of evidence show a breach of the packaging. It's unclear whether the breach goes through and through, but the defense may try to get it thrown out or use it to create reasonable doubt.
“The defense will come back and say, 'Look jurors, the evidence was compromised regardless of what testimony you hear from the lab analysts,'” WFTV legal Analyst Bill Sheaffer said. Sheaffer says the defense might try to make the same argument through FBI communications it specifically requested, which show crucial evidence from Casey Anthony's car trunk, including soil samples, pieces of trunk liner and carpeting, passed through a number of hands before it was tested by the FBI.
The new documents also show prosecutors wanted the measurements of the three pieces of duct tape layered over Caylee's face to make a computerized rendering. The two-inch-wide pieces are 9.5, 9, and 7.5 inches long. The fact that investigators are so open about whatever happened could diffuse any defense arguments about conspiracy or cover-up.
WHAT'S NEXT IN THE CASE?
A hearing has been scheduled for June 1 concerning the defense team's fight to keep public records about Casey’s visitors at the jail private and its request for Judge Perry to review some previous rulings made by Judge Strickland before he recused himself over questions about his conversations with a blogger.

The 580 pages released today in the Casey Anthony case drew television stations’ scrutiny at noon.
WFTV-Channel 9 anchor Vanessa Echols noted that the documents contained FBI evidence and e-mails.
WFTV’s Kathi Belich explained that the defense wanted the e-mails to look for anything that “could help them attack or eliminate some of the massive evidence against Casey.”
