ORLANDO, Fla. — A South Carolina inmate has filed a petition against Casey Anthony seeking a DNA test to determine if he was the father of her 2-year-old toddler.
Christopher Umberger filed the petition in Orlando against Anthony, who was acquitted earlier this month of killing her daughter, Caylee.
Anthony is set to be released from jail on Sunday.
Umberger says in the court filing that he intends to sue Anthony for Caylee’s death. He provided no details to back up his claim.
The petition was made public Friday as a separate hearing was held to determine if Anthony can be deposed for a defamation lawsuit before she leaves jail.
The hearing adjourned after only a few minutes when Judge Jose Rodriguez said he was recusing himself. He didn’t explain why.
