Judge Belvin Perry ruled that Anthony must reimburse $97,676.98 in investigative costs incurred between July 15, 2008, when Anthony first told detectives that her daughter had been kidnapped by a nanny, and September 29, 2008, when detectives determined Caylee likely was dead rather than missing.

After a nationally televised trial this summer, Anthony was acquitted of murdering her daughter, Caylee, in a case that gripped America. The verdict caused national uproar with people venting their fury over social media as well as on radio and TV.

The fine comes as Anthony's parents, George and Cindy, have appeared on television for the first time since the case in a highly-publicised interview with Dr Phil.
