Jury selection continues in Casey Anthony trial

Jury selection will continue in Florida for the murder trial of Casey Anthony.

Twelve jurors have been picked from Pinellas County, including four on Saturday. The case needs 12 jurors and eight alternates to start, but Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry says he'll start swearing in jurors when they reach 15.

Court resumes Monday morning.

Anthony is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008. Anthony has pleaded not guilty and says a babysitter kidnapped the toddler. The trial will be held in Orlando, but jury selection was moved to Clearwater in the hope of seating an unbiased jury. Jurors will be sequestered during the trial that's expected to last six to eight weeks.
