The deposition was part of federal bankruptcy proceedings, which also include two defamation suits against Anthony, including one by a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez of Kissimmee, Fla. After Caylee’s 2008 disappearance, Anthony told investigators that a baby sitter named Zenaida Gonzalez kidnapped her daughter. During her trial, attorney Jose Baez said the baby sitter story was fabricated. Anthony was convicted of lying to law enforcement officials.
In the deposition, Anthony said neither the baby sitter nor the woman suing for defamation kidnapped the girl, according to The Associated Press
Anthony declined to answer questions about her daughter during the deposition, invoking her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Lawyers for Gonzales said they will ask the judge to compel her to respond, according to the AP.
Also in the deposition, Anthony reportedly denied giving Xanax to Caylee and denied that the phrase “Zanny the nanny” referred to the drug.
Questions Anthony declined to answer included when she knew her daughter was dead and why she lied to investigators. Anthony threatened to walk out of the room if lawyers continued to question her about her daughter, according to First Coast News
