WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Tuesday hearing has been scheduled for the man accused of killing a 5-year-old northern Iowa girl in 2005. Casey Frederiksen is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2005 slaying of Evelyn Miller, whose body was found along the Cedar River. Frederiksen, 35, was charged in 2012 with the girl's death. Authorities said Frederiksen was living with Evelyn's mother in Floyd when the girl was killed.

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A donated house in eastern Iowa provided the backdrop for a fire training exercise involving more than a dozen area firefighters, according to authorities overseeing the event. Multiple departments gathered Sunday in Dubuque to receive hands-on training. The house was later burned down to conclude the exercise.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Governor Terry Branstad says he's busying running the state and running for re-election and that's why he's not giving sworn testimony in a civil lawsuit until after the election. Former Workers' Compensation Commissioner Christopher Godfrey sued Branstad and other officials two years ago, claiming they used illegal tactics to force him to resign. Branstad has agreed to be questioned under oath in late November.

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Police want to question a man and his girlfriend about the disappearance of a Waterloo man. A body believed to be that of 44-year-old Ronald Randall was found early Friday and an autopsy has indicated the person was the victim of a homicide.
