MURDER CASE: Frederiksen Back In Iowa
The man accused of killing five-year-old Evelyn Miller in 2005 is back in an Iowa jail awaiting his murder trial.
Thirty-three-year-old Casey Frederiksen is charged with first degree murder in the death of Miller. She disappeared from the apartment Frederiksen shared with Evelyn’s mother Noel in the early morning hours of July 1st, 2005. Her body was found five days later along the Cedar River.
Evelyn’s autopsy showed she died of sharp force injuries including wounds to the neck. There was also evidence of sexual assault.
Frederiksen, who was engaged to Evelyn’s mother at the time of the crime, was charged with the murder at the end of September — seven-years after Miller was killed. At the time of the charge, he was serving a federal prison sentence on child pornography and drug charges in a penitentiary in Marion, Illinois.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation took custody of Frederiksen Monday and he is being held in the Floyd County Jail. He’s scheduled to make an appearance in Floyd County court Tuesday morning.
A trial date has not been set.
