TAMPA, FL -- Casey Anthony has filed for bankruptcy in Florida, claiming about $1,100 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities.

Court records show that Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her two-year-old daughter in 2011, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Friday in federal court in Tampa.

Her listed debts include $500,000 for attorney fees and costs for her criminal defense lawyer during the trial, Jose Baez; $145,660 for the Orange County Sheriff's office for a judgment covering investigative fees and costs; $68,540 to the Internal Revenue Service for taxes, interest and penalties; and $61,505 to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for court costs.

The filing lists her as unemployed.

An attorney for Anthony, David Schrader, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Associated Press.
