The public will not see a video that shows Casey Anthony's reaction in a Florida jail when she learned that her young daughter's remains had been found.

A judge ruled Wednesday to seal the video recorded Dec. 11 at the Orange County Jail. He worried the footage could taint potential jurors if it were released.

Defense attorneys have asked that the trial be moved to South Florida because of intense media coverage in Orlando, where the body was found.

Anthony has been charged in Caylee's death. She pleaded not guilty and says a baby sitter kidnapped her toddler. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty if she is convicted of first-degree murder.

Caylee was last seen about a year ago but wasn't reported missing until a month after her disappearance.
