Among more than 1,100 pages of documents released Thursday in the Caylee Anthony case were images from her mother's computer – including pictures of skulls and a drawing of two skeletons locked in an embrace.

Also among the images: a photo of little Caylee with a heart-shaped sticker similar to the one later found with the slain toddler's body.

The defense for Caylee's mother, Casey, had asked a judge to prevent the photos from being publicly released, but the motion was denied last week. At the hearing, Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, said that releasing the photographs would be "embarrassing" to the Anthony family.

The documents also contain a transcript of an interview with Anthony's former boyfriend. According to Anthony Lazarro, he awoke in the middle of the night to find Casey Anthony sitting on the bed, watching videos of Caylee and silently crying. He claims this happened just days after the 2-year-old Florida toddler was last seen alive.

The defense downplayed the release of the latest documents. In a statement, Baez said, "We are going to reserve comment on discovery releases until those times when the discovery is of some importance to the real evidence in this case."

Casey Anthony, 22, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, and has pleaded not guilty. She is being held without bond at the Orange County Jail in Orlando, awaiting a trial expected to begin in October.
