The mother of a five-year-old girl who was murdered in Floyd County two years ago is in trouble with the law again. Noel Miller of Charles City missed a pre-trial hearing in Floyd County District Court on Monday and authorities issued a warrant for her arrest.
The 24-year-old Miller has been charged with going armed with intent, being accused of calling 9-1-1 last Christmas and concealing a six-and-a-half-inch kitchen knife up her sleeve when police showed up at her house. Miller pleaded not guilty to the charge in January.
Floyd County Sheriff Rick Lynch says Miller did arrive at the courthouse before they could serve the warrant. Last week, the Iowa Court of Appeals decided to not allow Miller parental rights for her two young sons who have been in foster care since their sister Evelyn was murdered in July of 2005.
