Fla. judge denies motion to inspect child remains

ORLANDO, Fla. – A judge has denied a defense attorney's motion to inspect a child's remains found near the home of a missing 3-year-old central Florida girl.

The motion, filed by Jose Baez, was denied Friday. He represents the girl's mother, 22-year-old Casey Anthony, who is charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance of Caylee Anthony.

Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary says a medical examiner found evidence among the remains link them to the missing girl's home, but officials would not immediately give further information.

The remains were found Thursday by a utility worker on a wooded lot less than a half-mile from the house where Caylee lived with her grandparents and her mother.
