Suspect in '05 Death of Girl in Iowa Custody
CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) — A man charged with killing an Iowa girl in 2005 is now in state custody.
Thirty-three-year-old Casey Frederiksen is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse in the death of 5-year-old Evelyn Miller.
State agents took custody of Frederiksen on Monday from a federal penitentiary in Marion, Ill., where he's serving time on child pornography and drug charges. He'll make an initial court appearance Tuesday at the Floyd County Courthouse in Charles City.
Frederiksen was the boyfriend of the child's mother. He was watching the girl at the family's apartment in Floyd when she disappeared. Her body was found in the Cedar River days later.
Frederiksen was charged last month. Prosecutors say he changed his story while in federal prison and inmates say he made incriminating statements.
