She told jury members Frederiksen told her he saw a man grab Evelyn Miller while holding a knife to her body on July 1,2005.Sullivan said Frederiksen told her he didn't bring up the man with the knife earlier because he didn't want the girl's mother to be mad at him for not stopping it. During cross examination, Sullivan said Frederiksen never admitted to killing Evelyn Miller during her questioning. Others testifying through the day were former Iowa DCI agent Mike Morris and Floyd County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jeff Crooks. The trial resumes at 9 Thursday morning.
