Posted at: 01/05/2013 2:13 PM

CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Oct. 28 trial date has been scheduled for a man charged in the death of 5-year-old Evelyn Miller.

The Globe Gazette in Mason City reports (http://bit.ly/ULH5GW ) the trial date was set this week for 33-year-old Casey Frederiksen. He's charged with first-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse in the Floyd girl's death in July 2005.

Her body was found in the Cedar River, several days after she went missing.

Frederiksen was serving time in federal prison on child pornography charges when he was charged last September. Frederiksen was the live-in boyfriend of Miller's mother.

A judge will rule later on whether to move the trial to another county because of extensive publicity in Floyd County.

Frederiksen remains in the Bremer County Jail.
