There are new legal problems for the mother of the five-year-old Charles City-area girl who was murdered last summer. Noel Miller was arrested last week for operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent. The car was reported stolen on Friday by Dennis King, the father of Casey Frederiksen who Miller shares two toddler sons with, and who also was Miller’s live-in fiancé when Evelyn Miller disappeared from her rural Floyd apartment last July.

Police say King suspected that Miller had taken the vehicle, but the officer’s report also shows that Miller said King had given her permission to use the car, and that Miller had no intent of permanently depriving King of the car. A second female in the car, 24-year-old Jamie Griffin of Charles City, was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
