Casey Frederiksen trial starts Monday
WEBSTER CITY (AP) – The trial of a 35-year-old man charged with first-degree murder in a northern Iowa girl’s stabbing death is set to begin next week.
Prosecutors said Casey Frederiksen was watching the 5-year-old girl at the time of her disappearance in July 2005. She was the daughter of his live-in girlfriend.
The child’s body was found in the Cedar River a few days after she was reported missing.
The trial is scheduled to begin Monday in Webster City and is expected to last at least two weeks.
