ORLANDO -- An Orlando television station is asking a judge to unseal a jailhouse video showing Casey Anthony’s reaction to the news that her 2-year-old daughter’s remains had been found.
WKMG-TV asked that the video be unsealed last week. The motion was released by the court Monday.
A judge sealed the video in 2009, saying its release could be highly inflammatory and ruin Anthony’s chance for a fair trial.
The video was taken by the Orange County Jail in December 2008 after Caylee’s remains were found in woods near the home she shared with her family.

Anthony was acquitted last week of murdering her daughter, Caylee. She is expected to be released from jail Sunday.
One of Casey Anthony’s defense lawyers says he’s worried about her safety once she’s released.
Cheney Mason told NBC’s “Today” show Monday he doesn’t know where Anthony will go when she’s freed Sunday from jail.
He said she would need time and counseling to re-enter society after being jailed for nearly three years before and during her high-profile trial. She was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement.
Mason said Anthony’s relations with her parents were “pretty well burned” after the trial, where her defense team contended she was sexually abused by her father. Her father, George Anthony, denied the claims.
Jail records show Casey Anthony refused a visit Friday from her mother, Cindy.
Meanwhile, authorities in Melbourne Beach say a man struck a woman during a fight over the Anthony trial.
Melbourne Beach police arrived at the city’s pier Saturday after a fight broke out. They say the suspect, 42-year-old Robert Hakimoglu, jumped into a lagoon to elude police.
Sgt. Rick Dovale says an argument started as he and others discussed the trial. Dovale says Hakimoglu started fighting with others and hit a woman during the fight.
According to officers, Hakimoglu agreed with the jury’s decision and said he wanted to meet Anthony and “maybe have kids with her.”
Hakimoglu was later arrested at his parents’ home and charged with resisting arrest without violence, battery and an alcohol ordinance violation.
