Prosecutors are seeking a gag order in the case of a young Florida mother charged with killing her 3-year-old daughter.

The state wants to bar attorneys, Orange County sheriff's investigators and the parents of the mother from making any statements to the media about the case against 22-year-old Casey Anthony.

Kayla Anthony was last seen in June but her mother did not report her missing until July. More than 1,000 searchers spent the weekend looking for the toddler's body. It has not been recovered.

The child's mother has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter and four counts of lying to investigators about the disappearance of her daughter.
