ORLANDO (WESH) -- Casey Anthony will have to pay back even more costs related to the investigation of the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Judge Belvin Perry added $119,822.25 to Anthony's bill in an order Friday, bringing the grand total in costs she must pay to $217,499.23.

In all, agencies said the investigation into Caylee's disappearance cost them more than $515,000.

Perry had previously ordered Anthony to pay $97,676.98. His new order adds reimbursement for the Orange County Sheriff's Office after the agency submitted additional expense reports.

Here is the revised reimbursement cost amount by department:

  • Florida Department of Law Enforcement: $61,505.12
  • Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation: $10,283.90
  • Orange County Sheriff's Office: $145,660.21 (up from $25,837.96 in a previous order)
  • State Attorney's Office: $50

Perry originally said that several OCSO reports were not adequately broken down, and that he needed more information on how OCSO employees spent time on the case in 2008, including investigators Yuri Melich, John Allen and others.

After OCSO filed the revised reports, Anthony's legal team filed an objection, saying Anthony should not be responsible for the costs.
