A 100-page transcript of Casey Anthony's recent deposition was released, where she was asked about the 2008 death of her daughter, Caylee.

ORLANDO, Fla. -

Casey Anthony maintains that a baby sitter her attorney acknowledged was fabricated at her 2011 murder trial was a real person.

Anthony was questioned in a Jan. 23 deposition related to bankruptcy proceedings. A transcript of the deposition was filed Tuesday in Orlando federal court.

Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. After Caylee disappeared in 2008, Anthony told investigators that a baby sitter named Zenaida Gonzalez had kidnapped her.

The Kissimmee woman has sued Anthony, claiming her reputation has been ruined.

Anthony told Gonzalez's attorneys that she met the baby sitter in 2006 and the woman cared for Caylee once.

Anthony said neither the baby sitter nor the woman suing her for defamation did actually kidnap Caylee. She declined to answer questions about why she lied to investigators.
