IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Danny Slick, the man accused of lying to federal agents investigating the 2005 slaying of a 5-year-old Floyd girl, is scheduled to go on trial in Sioux City later this month, a federal judge has ruled.

Slick, 27, of Charles City, is charged in two federal indictments that he made false statements to FBI agents about the whereabouts of his former roommate Randy Patrie in the hours after Evelyn Miller disappeared. Slick is believed to be one of the last people to see the girl alive.

His trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 20, according to a scheduling order signed last week by U.S. District Judge Paul Zoss.

Slick has been in federal custody since his arrest in August for violating the terms of his release. He has pleaded not guilty and has not yet waived his right to a speedy trial.

Under a joint request by prosecutors and defense attorneys, Slick has also recently undergone a mental health exam and was determined competent by federal Bureau of Prisons experts, according to assistant U.S. Attorney C.J. Williams.

Slick’s attorney has the option of challenging those findings by hiring an independent doctor to perform a separate exam.

According to authorities, Slick and Patrie, 33, also of Charles City, told investigators they saw the child alive when they stopped at her apartment about 2 a.m. to visit Casey Frederiksen, at the time the live-in boyfriend of Miller’s mother.

Frederiksen, who was sentenced this summer to 14 years on unrelated child pornography charges, said he was asleep at home when Miller disappeared. Both Slick and Patrie have stated they left Evelyn at her apartment unharmed.

Miller disappeared from her family’s apartment on July 1, 2005. Her body was found five days later in the Cedar River about two miles from her home. No charges have been filed in her death.

Thanks for the update. Almost a year and a half, and no charges on the murder. That's sad. On the other hand, at least some of these people are going to jail, anyhow ...

Randy Patrie just reported this morning to police that his car has been stolen. This is the same car he was driving the night Evelyn disappeared. I find it odd that the car would vanish now. Also this is a small town where car theft is practically unheard of.

Sooner or later, the car will be found. The question is where (at the bottom of a lake?) and/or in what condition (burned?).

okay now, Can someone explain to me why Randy Patrie hasn't been charged with anything? Casey charged and sentenced for child porn. Dan Slick charged with lying to authorities. What? only Dan lied? Was Randy honest about everything? What about unrelated charges like drugs.
