Trial of Man Accused of Killing Toddler to Start Tuesday

SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) – Clatsop County’s first death penalty trial in 15 years is set to begin Tuesday and could last for up to two months.

Jury selection for 28-year-old Randy Lee Roden’s murder trial will begin this week. Roden is accused of killing 2-year-old Evangelina Wing, who died of blunt force trauma in December 2014.

Emergency crews were called after Evangelina was not breathing. The child was dead when responders arrived.

Prosecutors say Evangelina’s two brothers, ages 5 and 3 at the time, were also tortured, burned, bitten and caged in the Seaside apartment their mother, Dorothy Wing, shared with Roden.

Records show Roden has a criminal record that included domestic violence and sex abuse.
