Breaking News - Prosecutors announce plans to seek death penalty against Casey Anthony

Orlando -- In a change of heart, the state attorney's office has filed a letter of intent Monday to seek the dealth penalty for Casey Anthony.

The court and Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, are being notified.

Previously, the state said they would not seek the death penalty for Anthony, who is in the Orange County Jail charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of her daughter, Caylee.

The state attorney's office is citing "sufficient aggarvating circumstances" as the reason for Monday's decision.

Meanwhile, the latest legal maneuver of the attorney for Casey Anthony, Jose Baez, may reveal where he plans to go with his client's defense.

Baez is asking a judge to let him subpoena cell phone records from a dozen people -- and some of the names on the list are surprising.

Casey Anthony's own family -- George, Cindy and Lee Anthony -- are on the list that Baez submitted to Judge Stan Strickland. Several of Casey Anthony's friends and Roy Kronk are also on the list.

Kronk is the meter reader who found the remains of Caylee Anthony in a wooded area off of Suburban Drive last December.

A criminal defense lawyer WESH 2 News spoke with said Baez can use these phone records to find out who Kronk spoke with and whether he told those people the same things he told investigators about what he saw and when.

"The state puts on their case first; suddenly all these things that seemed so incriminating, you lose focus when the defense is raising issues that affect the credibility of the prosecution," criminal defense attorney Richard Hornsby said.

WOW, that's the best news I have heard all day.

I was shocked that so many people (mostly men) are given the death penalty, and this cruel, spiteful bitch who is the poster child for MONSTER was going to skate around it. I'm so glad the Prosecutors had a change of heart.

To go around and pretend she's the greatest most caring mother while plotting and planning her precious daughter's murder! I do not believe it was an accident. I think she planned it for a long time.

This is my opinion.

Maybe it's just me - but I'll take death over anthing over 10 years in jail. Death or life in prison - I'll take death. Seems like a reward.
