End of Anthony’s probation kept secret

ORLANDO — Casey Anthony’s year of probation is ending this week, but when she will be released from state supervision is being kept secret because officials are concerned about her security.

Florida Department of Corrections officials said Monday that they will not announce publicly the end of her supervision because of those concerns.

Her attorneys several times have said Anthony, 26, has received death threats.

In a trial that captivated the nation last year, the Orlando woman was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
