It's going to be a long time before there is any resolution to the Casey Anthony murder trial. Fox35 has reported that Judge Stan Strickland has set a trial date of May 2, 2011.
In addition, they are reporting that the prosecution has filed a motion to meet with the judge in camera. According to Fox35,
Prosecutors say they have new material and information from investigators regarding the case that they don't want to go be disclosed to the public.
WESH has an article out which states that:
In the motion, the assistant state attorney said the team wants more time to go over new materials and information that has come into the hands of law enforcement. Prosecutors said they want to meet with the judge and ask to delay turning that information over to the defense.
Attorney Richard Hornsby said the state needs to determine how the materials affect the murder case against Anthony. If the information is coming from a new witness, he said the state needs more time to prevent the defense from discrediting or scaring away that person from testifying.

So, we will have to all be patient and watch the motions fly for over a year. Let's hope that the defense can get its act together by then.
Let's also hope that the information that the prosecution wants to keep away from the public is true "Bombshell" material at trial time.
I do have to wonder what Casey Anthony thinks about this timeline. I'm certain of one thing, she's not a happy camper in the Orange County Jail!
