In a deposition transcript filed in federal court on Tuesday, Casey Anthony mentions a mystery baby sitter that one of her attorneys said was fabricated at the 2011 trial for the murder of Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Anthony has been in hiding since being acquitted of murder charges in 2011. According to The Orlando Sentinel, the Jan. 23 deposition, during which she maintains that the baby sitter, Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, is a real person whom she met in 2006, includes the most expansive comments the public has heard from her since that time.

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.
