ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Florida murder trial of Casey Anthony is set to resume a day after the judge called for an abrupt recess.

Court will resume Tuesday morning after Judge Belvin Perry recessed for the day just before 11 a.m. Monday after a half-hour argument by attorneys about evidence disclosure.

Attorneys for both sides argued over what prosecutors say was a failure by defense lawyers to disclose all the material an upcoming witness intended to testify to. The defense said the state was engaging in legal maneuvering. Perry lectured them for wasting the court's time.

Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter. She faces a possible death sentence if convicted and has pleaded not guilty.
