The Casey Anthony murder trial on Wednesday will be a shortened session, according to media reports.

Judge Belvin Perry said the trial on Wednesday will be half-day as he must attend a judge's meeting, AP reported.

Casey Anthony , 25, is charged with the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee on June 16, 2008, and then storing her body in the trunk of a car. If she is found guilty of first degree murder, Casey Anthony could be sentenced to death by lethal injection.

Casey Anthony denies the charges that she murdered her toddler daughter. She contends that Caylee drowned accidentally in the swimming pool.

The prosecution says Casey killed the little girl by suffocation and kept the dead body hidden for several days. She then dumped the body in the woods near her parents' home.
