Casey Anthony, the 25-year-old mother has been acquitted in the 2008 death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee.

Prosecutors accused Anthony of using duct tape to suffocate her daughter after using chloroform to render her unconscious, in a bid to escape the challenges of parenthood and have more fun with her boyfriend. They also alleged that she put the child's body in the trunk of her car for a few days before disposing of it.

Caylee Anthony was last seen on June 16, 2008, Police did not learn of her disappearance until July 15. The child's skeletal remains were discovered December 11, 2008.

Though acquitted of murder, Anthony was convicted on four counts of lying to police, a misdemeanor under Florida law.

Jailed since her arrest in late 2008, Anthony was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison but is scheduled to be released Wednesday for time served and good behavior.
