CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa man convicted in the killing of his former girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison.

Along with Monday’s sentencing of 36-year-old Casey Frederiksen, a motion for a new trial was denied. Jurors found him guilty in March of first-degree sexual assault and first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Evelyn Miller while baby-sitting her in 2005.

Her body was found in the Cedar River days after she was reported missing.

Frederiksen’s attorney argued that a retrial was necessary because the jury returned verdicts that defy state law. In response, the judge presiding over the case cited prosecutorial evidence that supported the convictions.

Evelyn’s grandmother tells the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier that after 10 years, her granddaughter has gotten justice.
