ORLANDO, Fla. - A jail inmate says a Florida mother charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter would use drugs sometimes to put the toddler to sleep so that she could go out with friends.
A partial transcript of the interview the inmate had with investigators was released Tuesday by the State Attorney's Office in Orlando. Maya Derkovic says she was friendly with Casey Anthony in the Orange County Jail and that the 24-year-old mother confided in her.
A spokeswoman for Anthony's legal team didn't immediately respond to an e-mail and phone call. Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and has said a baby sitter kidnapped her daughter, Caylee.
The toddler's remains were found in December 2008, six months after she was reported missing.
