CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge plans to hear a man’s request for a retrial after he was convicted in March in the killing of his former girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1DWFXmp ) 36-year-old Casey Frederiksen’s request for a new trial will be considered prior to his sentencing hearing Monday. Jurors found him guilty 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 says after she was reported missing.

Frederiksen’s attorney argues that the judge presiding over the trial erred in allowing child pornography found on Frederiksen’s computer to be used as evidence. He also says the jury returned verdicts that defy state law.

Frederiksen faces a mandatory life sentence without parole.
