(AP) - The Casey Anthony trial is on hold until next week.

Attorneys for the Florida mother charged with murdering her two-year-old daughter were expected to continue calling witnesses on Saturday.

But after meeting with lawyers from both sides in the morning, the judge announced that court would adjourn until Monday. He said a "legal matter" had come up.

Outside the courthouse, neither side would comment on the reason for the early dismissal. The Orlando Sentinel reports that defense attorney Cheney Mason shouted at the throng of reporters to get out of his way.

Anthony has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and could face the death penalty if convicted of that charge. Her defense attorneys claim Caylee Anthony accidentally drowned in the family's swimming pool.
