(UPI) – A Florida grand jury Tuesday returned a sealed indictment in the case of missing toddler Caylee Anthony after the child’s grandfather testified.

Caylee has been missing since June but her absence wasn’t reported for weeks.

CNN and the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel report the name of the defendant won’t be released until an arrest is made. Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony, 22, has been under suspicion and her lawyer told CNN she would surrender if she is named in the indictment.

“She’s not running from this,” attorney Jose Baez said. “She’s doing her best to stand strong, to stand up to the powers that are working against her. And they threw the kitchen sink at her a long time ago.”

George Anthony, Caylee’s grandfather, Tuesday arrived at the Orlando courthouse to face a grand jury convened to determine if probable cause exists to indict Casey Anthony, CNN reported.

Jose Baez tosses WFTV from news Casey Anthony News Conference

WFTV-Channel 9 anchor Martie Salt called the mystery of missing Caylee Anthony one of Central Florida’s most bizarre stories.

“It didn’t take long for this to turn into a circus,” Salt said Tuesday afternoon, recalling how the story has gripped the public starting in early July. “Since then, it’s been three months of just kind of crazy stuff,” Salt added.

But on Tuesday, there was news: A grand jury indicted Casey Anthony, mother of Caylee, on first-degree murder.

Local broadcast stations interrupted their regular schedules shortly before 4 p.m. for the reading of the grand jury decision. Earlier, the stations broke away from programming for a statement by Jose Baez, Casey’s attorney. She stood next to him in tears.

There was crazy stuff, too. Baez tossed WFTV from the news conference because he didn’t like the station’s questions, General Manager Shawn Bartelt told me. “He doesn’t like us because we’ve been aggressive in reporting details of the story,” she said.

Baez accused the station of being “a tabloid news channel.”

Grand Jury Hands Down An Indictment Against Caylee Anthony’s Mother

The public wasn’t allowed inside the courtroom but WESH 2 News reported details as they became known of the events as they unfolded. When Casey’s father, George Anthony came out of the courtroom reporter Bob Kealing from WESH2 News said George appeared somber as he stood by the elevator door waiting to go downstairs. He was holding a folder with Caylee’s picture on the front of it. His attorney Mark NeJame said, “Mr. Anthony answered all the questions he was asked. Beyond that we’re really not allowed to comment.”

George Anthony was subpoenaed to testify about the odor of human decomposition coming from Casey’s car. “This is going to be very hard for me to do,” he told reporters outside the Orange County Courthouse before he entered. “My focus is on my granddaughter, it always has been. Just pray for her. That’s all I am asking.”
