Frederiksen Calm During Initial Appearance
(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Tuesday morning, a calm Casey Frederiksen sat in Floyd County court, and was responsive to the judge.
The 33-year-old is charged in the 2005 death of Evelyn Miller, the 5-year-old daughter of Frederiksen's then girlfriend.
Charges last month accuse Frederiksen of sexually abusing the young girl, before killing her, and dumping her body.
The presiding judge also rejected a plea by Frederiksen to restrict expanded media coverage of the trial, meaning cameras will be allowed inside the courtroom throughout the case.
We'll have much more on this case tonight on ABC 6 News at 5, 6 and 10.
