ORLANDO, Fla. – A Florida judge on Friday increased the reimbursement costs Casey Anthony must pay to investigators for searching for her missing 2-year-old daughter three years ago.

Judge Belvin Perry added another $119,000 to the bill she owes four law enforcement agencies in central Florida, bringing the total to more than $217,000. That’s still short of the $500,000 prosecutors were seeking.

The additional amount comes from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office providing the judge with more details about their costs. The judge said in the earlier order that the sheriff’s office hadn’t sufficiently broken down the costs of its investigation from mid-July through September 2008.

Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had kidnapped the child. Authorities later learned the baby sitter never existed.

The costs only cover the missing person investigation and not the homicide investigation.

Anthony, who was declared indigent by the court so taxpayers paid for her defense, has appealed her misdemeanor convictions.

The judge said that Anthony’s payment obligations will be a civil judgment, meaning her creditors will have to sue to collect any money she earns from a book deal or the rights to her story. If she ever tries to buy a house, they will be able to put a lien on it.

Anthony currently is serving probation at an undisclosed location in Florida for unrelated check fraud charges.

Travolta visits Gotti family to research his role in upcoming film

Incoherent actress is led from podium

PHILADELPHIA – Kim Delaney, star of the television show “Army Wives,” had to be escorted from the podium at an event in Philadelphia after struggling to read her speech from a teleprompter.

It happened Thursday at an event honoring former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Delaney is a 49-year-old Philadelphia native. Her remarks were punctuated by long pauses and fragmented sentences. After several minutes, a video began to play. She was escorted away from the podium to a chair on the side of the stage by a woman who appeared to be a producer.

Her publicist did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

The event Thursday at National Constitution Center was in honor of Gates. He received the 2011 Liberty Medal, a civic award, for his long public service career.
