The man accused of killing missing Colorado mother Kelsey Berreth has been formally charged with multiple murder counts.
A reporter for KT11 News posted from the Teller County District Courthouse on Monday morning that Patrick Frazee has been charged with five murder counts: two charges of first degree murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder. The charges indicate that authorities believe Frazee attempted to enlist at least one person, possibly more, in a conspiracy to murder the mother of his 1-year-old daughter.

The post also said that court documents show authorities believe Berreth was killed at her Woodland Park home in the course of an attempted robbery. It is not yet known if investigators believe there were additional people present at the crime scene.
Berreth, 29, vanished on Thanksgiving Day. In a press conference on December 21 announcing Frazee’s arrest, authorities said that her body had not been found but that they believe she was killed at her home.
