Anthony's current lead attorney, Jose Baez, is not certified to handle a death penalty case. His office, however, does not seem concerned by the new development, as is evident in comments that Marti Mackenzie, spokeswoman for Baez, made to Orlandosentinel.com .
"This is not a death-penalty case. We will do whatever is necessary to defend Casey Anthony from the state trying to take her life," Mackenzie said, adding, "We already have death-qualified defense lawyers on our team and are prepared for a vigorous defense."
Casey Anthony's trial is scheduled to begin in October 2009.
