The man convicted of murdering Kelsey Berreth has filed a notice of appeal in Colorado.
In November, Patrick Frazee was convicted of murdering his fiancée Kelsey Berreth on Thanksgiving Day 2018. Berreth’s body was never found, but a key witness in the case, Krystal Kenney, testified that she cleaned up the bloody crime scene at Berreth’s Woodland Park townhouse after Frazee demanded she drive from Idaho to Colorado to do so. Kenney also testified that she helped Frazee dispose of key evidence and watched him burn what she believed were Berreth’s remains at his ranch in Florissant.
Frazee is believed to have bludgeoned Berreth to death in her home. He was found guilty of all charges against him: two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of solicitation to commit murder, and one count of tampering with a body.
According to KDVR, Frazee filed a Notice of Appeal on January 6 at the Court of Appeals in Denver. As the report notes, this document represents an intent to appeal the conviction and is the first step in the appeal process.
Frazee is the father of Berreth’s toddler daughter, who is now in the custody of Berreth’s parents
