ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida appellate court has set aside two of the four convictions Casey Anthony faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing 2-year-old daughter.
Judges on the 5th District Court of Appeals agreed with Anthony's attorneys Friday that two of the charges constituted double jeopardy, or being convicted more than once for the same crime.
The judges, however, ruled that the trial court was correct to allow her statements to detectives to be used during her murder trial.
Anthony's attorneys had argued that she was in police custody at the time and hadn't been read her Miranda rights.
Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee in 2011. Jurors convicted her of four counts of lying to detectives, and her attorneys appealed those convictions.
