ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS/WKMG) Casey Anthony, the Orlando mother who insists she didn't murder her 2-year-old daughter, may be prepared to admit to some financial finagling -- allegations of check fraud. That case against her, involving a former friend, has been delayed, signaling a possible plea deal.

Meanwhile, Anthony sits in the Orange County, Fla. jail without bond in the murder of daughter Caylee.

Anthony's former friend Amy Huizenga accused her of check fraud. The trial was scheduled to begin Jan. 25, but Orange County court officials said it won't happen. Instead, there will be hearing in the case on that day, and CBS affiliate WKMG reports the delay could indicate a plea is coming.

Court officials also said on that same day it is likely there will be two hearings in the murder case against Anthony. The specific motions involved have not been cited.

Caylee Anthony was 2-years-old when she was reported missing in July 2008. Her remains were found in a wooded area in east Orange County, near the home of Casey Anthony's parents', in December 2008.

She is expected to stand trial for first degree murder this summer.
