(Cedar Rapids KCRG) -- Casey Frederiksen will remain in the Linn County jail until his trial.
A grand jury indicted Frederiksen last week on a child pornography charge.
Frederiksen is engaged to noel miller, the mother of five-year-old Floyd County murder victim, Evelyn Miller.
Prosecutors at Monday's Federal Court hearing revealed shocking new details about Frederiksen.
When Frederiksen walked into the courtroom he was surrounded by his parents, his sister and his fiancé, Noel Miller.
He appeared to be in good spirits, even whispering, "I love you" to his fiancé but the mood changed when the prosecutor started talking.
The prosecutor said investigators found more than one-thousand images of child pornography on Frederiksen's computer.
In addition to those pictures, Frederiksen also had a large number of child pornography movies on his computer too.
In fact, the prosecutor said it was the largest amount of child porn movies he'd seen on a computer in his career.
Plus, at the age of 13, Frederiksen admitted to a Charles City police officer that he sexually molested a child.
The prosecutor also mentioned Frederiksen's suicide attempt on September 21st.
During that suicide attempt, Frederiksen drew a knife on police officers trying to help him and then said he had another knife in his pocket.
The prosecutor said that type of behavior makes Frederiksen a threat.
Finally, prosecutors mentioned Frederiksen was the last person to see Evelyn alive.
The prosecutor said Evelyn was under Frederiksen's care and then ended up dead.
Noel Miller had tears in her eyes after the judge ruled Frederiksen must be detained.
She left the courthouse with Frederiksen's father and did not say anything.
Frederiksen's mother also left the courthouse without giving a comment.
Then, Frederiksen left the courthouse and returned back to the Linn County Jail.
His next scheduled court appearance is on December 5th.
Prosecutors have not charged anyone in connection with Evelyn Miller's murder.

.308 bullseye candidate.
And fiscally sound too.
His new roommates may help out with the investigation
Since Ms. Miller tried to hide the hard drive from police, she obviously was aware of the pornography.
Makes one wonder why she was not charged as well.
"During that suicide attempt, Frederiksen drew a knife on police officers trying to help him... "
Too bad they didn't finish him off. Would have saved a lot of taxpayers the expense of housing this POS.
Prison-made shank candidate.
And a couple of days ago, Casey's defenders on FR were saying it was probably just one fuzzy picture of a teenager, trumped up charges by the jackbooted po-lice.
If not Frederiksen himself, I'd guess his pastime had some connection, at least. Birds of a feather...
if the drives contained images of Evey, why didn't she copy them to a CD or send them to a photo sharing service?
Either of those options takes time (as well as talent and/or money). With LE hot on the trail, time was not on her side.
Why didn't she or he destroy the drive? They had the opportunity to have done so.
How would they know when to expect the knock at the door? At any rate -- and, maybe this is the answer to all such questions -- I can only imagine it might be extremely difficult under such circumstances (on top of losing Evey, the fear of doing time in a Federal prison) to calmly and rationally think things through, and arrive at the best option, which would have been to completely lose the drive. Don't give it to a neighbor; make it disappear. Of course, if the family photos were on it, ... There again is the dilemma.
Regardless, I'm thankful the evidence was found. If this doesn't lead to Evey's killer (it may yet), it should at least get some vermin off the street for a while.
Interestingly, the neighbors' actions appear to have been justified. Now, they can let their kids play outside again.
I'm willing to cut them some slack, simply because I can imagine they may have been desperately hoping little Evelyn wasn't living all her life with a pedophile and his enabler.
... [Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean] Berry said Monday that Noel Miller had at one point discovered Frederiksen watching a film clip of naked teens on his computer. Berry said Miller moved out after discovering a file containing sexually explicit images of children, returning only after Frederiksen assured her the images were the result of a computer virus. ...
White trash central.
I agree with that.
What a turn of events this is! Strange as it may sound, this makes me even more convinced that Casey, and possibly even Noel, had nothing to do with Evelyn's death. Obviously, they didn't do a good job hiding the hard drive, and they were caught fairly easily. Surely if they had killed Evelyn, they wouldn't have been able to cover their tracks as well as the killer apparently has been able to.
Sadly, I'm afraid this is going to give an "out" at trial to whoever did kill Evelyn. This is only going to make the police have to work 1000 times as hard to prove who did do it, because any halfway decent defense attorney is going to be able to point right at Casey and say "My client didn't do it, it was THAT sicko."
Makes me ill to my stomach. Poor, poor Evey.
Well I was one of those people. But I was just saying the facts have not been revealed saying not to rush for judgment. And yeah I did hope that it wasn't true: Because I believe that the Christies believe Casey would never hurt this girl ... etc. (like they have said) I hoped it might also be just a trick to get one or the other to confess. Not something so awful ... It's always easier to think that yes something evil stopped by that night instead of some creepy person always being there just waiting for the right time or taking things further than they intended. ... If this girl's parents killed her and hid it this well, what else have they done? . . . I hoped Scott Peterson didn't kill his wife and unborn child too.
She is absolute trash to allow this disgusting "fiance" of hers to live in her house with her little daughter while he had a sexual collection of pics of young children
All the people in those small towns were right to go with their "gut feelings" about these two - their children and the neighborhood children deserve the protection poor Evelyn never got.
