DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WESH) - The Fifth District Court of Appeals has ruled to set aside two Casey Anthony's four convictions from her 2011 murder trial.

Anthony was convicted in August 2011 of four different counts of lying to police. She claims that she is a victim of double jeopardy.

"We reject Appellant's first and third arguments, but conclude that double jeopardy principles require that two of her four misdemeanor convictions be set aside," the court's ruling reads.

The court found that giving false information is not the same as giving false statements.

Two of Anthony's convictions still stand.

Anthony was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony. She served one year of probation in an unrelated check fraud case after the murder trial.
