High profile 2005 murder case goes to trial today

Posted: Updated:
WEBSTER CITY (KWWL) -

Jury selection begins today in Webster City for the man accused of stabbing and killing 5-year-old Evelyn Miller nearly 10 years ago.

Casey Frederiksen faces charges first degree murder and first degree sexual assault.

Prosecutors say Frederiksen sexually abused then stabbed Evelyn to death in July 2005.

Miller's body was found in the Cedar River a few days later.

Pre-trial publicity caused the trial to be moved to Hamilton County.

It is expected to last at least 2 weeks.
