$2M bond for suspect in killing of Iowa girl
CHARLES CITY (AP) — An Iowa judge on Tuesday set a $2 million bond for an Illinois inmate charged with sexually assaulting and killing his girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter in a case that took years for investigators to build because of a lack of physical evidence.
Casey Frederiksen, 33, made his initial court appearance before a magistrate in Floyd County on charges of first-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse in the 2005 death of Evelyn Miller. Bond was set at $1 million cash on each charge, KCHA radio reported. Frederiksen will be appointed a public defender, but no attorney was named. A preliminary hearing was set for Oct. 26.
Floyd County Attorney Normand Klemesrud said even if Frederiksen is able to post bond, he wouldn’t be set free. He would be sent back to the federal prison in Illinois where he was serving time on child pornography and drug charges, the Globe Gazette reported.
