 • Evelyn Miller murder trial to begin Monday in Hamilton County District Court.

 Jury selection will begin Monday in Hamilton County District Court in the murder trial of  35 year old Casey Fredericksen.

The body of Miller was allegedly  dumped in the Cedar River by Frederiksen to cover up the crime. Frederiksen was arrested in September,2012 on one count of first degree murder and one count of first degree sexual abuse in the Miller case. He was already in prison after being convicted of other charges filed against him. The trial is expected to last up to two weeks with 120 potential jurors to be called. The potential witnesses in this trial will include Floyd County Sheriff Rick Lynch, Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation special agent in charge Chris Callaway and University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics pediatrician and child abuse expert Dr. Resmiye Oral.
