Evelyn Miller Trial Day 3: Frederiksen's changing story

Posted: Updated:

The third day of testimony in the Casey Frederiksen trial is underway, and the mother of Evelyn Miller is expected to take the stand.

Frederiksen is accused of sexually abusing and murdering his girlfriend's 5-year-old daughter, Evelyn, in 2005. She went missing that summer, and her body was later found in the Cedar River near Charles City.

Frederiksen was living with his girlfriend, Noel Miller, at the time of the killing. Previously, witnesses have testified that Frederiksen told them he would become sexually aroused while changing Evelyn's diapers.

He's currently in prison for possession of child pornography.

During the search for Evelyn, authorities found a hard drive from Frederiksen's computer, which contained hundreds of pictures and videos of adult men engaging in sex acts with children between the ages of 2 and 5.

First on the stand Thursday was former FBI agent Randy Van Gent. Van Gent's testimony focused on how Frederiksen's story of the disappearance changed of several interviews between July 2005 and February 2007.

Van Gent testified that Frederiksen first told them he never saw Evelyn disappear in 2005, during the initial search.

He later changed his story in 2007 while in federal prison, telling investigators he saw his acquaintance Randy Patrie come into their home and carry Evelyn out at knife point.

Noel is expected to take the stand Thursday afternoon.
