New Attorney for Man Accused of Killing Evelyn Miller
CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of killing an Iowa girl in 2005 is getting a new attorney.
The Globe Gazette says a judge on Monday ordered that Casey Frederiksen be represented by the Waterloo public defender's office due to a conflict of interest by prior representation of potential witnesses by the Mason City public defender's office.
Because of the change, Frederiksen's arrangement is delayed until Nov. 19.
Frederiksen is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse in the death of Evelyn Miller, who vanished from her family's apartment in Floyd. Her body was found days later along the Cedar River.
Frederiksen, the live-in boyfriend of Evelyn's mother, was in federal prison on child pornography and drug charges when he was charged in the child's death in September.
