August trial for Iowan accused in toddler's death

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A judge expects the upcoming murder trial for an eastern Iowa man accused of killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter to last three or four weeks.

The trial for Lee Muldoon is set for Aug. 9. The Coggon man is charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment. He's charged in the beating death of Skylar Inman in July 2008.

About 100 prospective jurors are likely to be called.

Another hearing in the case is set for Friday.

Skylar's mother, Brianna Volesky, pleaded guilty in January to involuntary manslaughter. She will be sentenced after Muldoon's trial.
