    UPDATE: Prosecutors paint #PatrickFrazee as cold, calculating and conniving killer in closing arguments of his trial. "His intent was to kill her (#KelseyBerreth) and finish her off, since she was a problem to him. She was a problem that he needed to go away."
    @csgazette

    "No body, no crime. That's what the defendant has been banking on for several months. The problem for him is evidence," says prosecutor Beth Reed of #PatrickFrazee during closing arguments.
    @csgazette #KelseyBerreth

    "We all wish #KelseyBerreth would walk through that door right now," says prosecutor Beth Reed. "That's never going to happen."
    In using that last sentence, Reed repeats #PatrickFrazee's own words to another person about Berreth a day before his arrest.
    @csgazette

    Sam Kraemer @SamKraemerTV
    Prosecution just wrapped their closing argument. They stressed that Frazee planned this. That it was premeditated, calculated, cold and cruel. That Berreth was planning a future while he was planning her death.

    Prosecutor shows last picture of #KelseyBerreth alive -- one at a Safeway. "This is not consistent with someone who's suicidal. It's consistent with someone who believes she has a future. A future with the man who is about to kill her."
    @csgazette #PatrickFrazee

    And prosecutor Beth Reed showed a photo of #PatrickFrazee's truck after he apparently leaves #KelseyBerreth's house on Thanksgiving Day last year. The box, Reed says, is in a different position.
    @csgazette

    "Because #KelseyBerreth is in that box. Her beaten and battered body is in that box. And he's going to take it to his house, where he keeps it in the back of the truck while he eats Thanksgiving dinner with his family," prosecutor says.
    @csgazette #PatrickFrazee

    Prosecutor Beth Reed sought to bolster the testimony of her star witness, Krystal Lee, who was #PatrickFrazee's mistress. Lee endured an aggressive cross-examination from Frazee's defense team that hit on her credibility and motivations for testifying.@csgazette #KelseyBerreth

    "Everything Krystal Lee said, testified to and told you about on the stand, is corroborated by all the the other physical evidence, and evidence this case," said prosecutor Beth Reed. @csgazette #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee

    Prosecution rests after closing statements in Patrick Frazee trial
    The prosecution has rested following closing statements in the trial of Patrick Frazee.

    [...]

    The day began with Judge Scott Sells instructing seven female and five male jurors how to proceed their deliberation, only considering the facts of this case, and having no communication or research about the trial to influence a decision. Frazee wore a blue-stripped-dress shirt, staring at the jurors during instruction.

    […]

    Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Reed stood up slowly in the courtroom. “We all wish Kelsey Berreth could walk through that door right now,” she said. “That’s never going to happen.”

    Reed laid out Berreth’s final known actions. Conversations with co-workers about a Christmas party, and whether Frazee would attend, going to Walmart to buy medication for Frazee in the middle of the night, because he had fallen ill.

    “While Kelsey Berreth is planning the future, this man was plotting her murder for months. Months!” As she points directly at Frazee. “This is not consistent with someone who’s going to walk off and leave her child. Not consistent with someone who is suicidal. It’s consistent with someone who is planning the future with the man she plans to marry.”

    [...]

    Reed went slide after slide, poking holes in Frazee’s timeline of events. He was seen with video surveillance at the Federal Credit Union and Walmart in town. According to Frazee, at 2:45 p.m. he went back to Florrisant to check on his cattle.

    “He’s not home for Thanksgiving Dinner, he’s in Woodland Park because he just killed Kelsey Berreth,” Reed said, pointing towards cellphone records that show Frazee’s phone pinged off a cellphone tower in Woodland Park at that time.

    [...]

    “Kelsey Berreth is in that box. Her beaten and battered body is in that box,” Reed said. “He’s taking it back to his house because he’s going to eat Thanksgiving Dinner with Berreth in his truck.”

    [...]

    “Second degree murder does not apply in this case,” Reed said. “There is nothing about this case that screams degree murder. Everything is premeditated. Everything is deliberated. Do not check that box on your verdict.”

    [...]

    “She didn’t have to come forward at all, but when she did come forward she told us everything,” Reed said. “Including the things that subject her to criminal prosecution.” Reed continued by saying everything Lee said can be backed up by evidence. “Everything the defendant said is contradicted by the evidence.”

    [...]

    ... The defense will likely attack the credibility of the prosecution’s key witness and focus on the lack of a body, murder weapon and other physical evidence directly tying Frazee to the crime.

    Reed did not expound on one particular motive Frazee may have had, but instead outlined many possibilities. She said maybe Frazee killed Berreth because he didn’t want to pay child support or because he wanted to assure he would have sole custody of their young daughter, Kaylee. Reed told the jury they didn’t have to agree on the verdict but that the prosecution had proved the murder beyond a reasonable doubt.

    [...]

    “Do you know how much of the defendant’s story is corroborated by the evidence?” Reed said. “Zero. None.”

    Reed walked the jury through the evidence showing where Frazee, Berreth and Kenney’s phones were between Thanksgiving Day and Nov. 25. The phone data – some of the prosecution’s strongest evidence for their case – contradicts Frazee’s timeline he gave to law enforcement and is consistent with Kenney’s account.

    The prosecutor also highlighted the fact that Frazee never attempted to contact Berreth even as a nationally publicized search for her began.

    [...]

    The separate first-degree murder charges represent two different legal theories. To convict Frazee of first-degree murder after deliberation, the jury will have to find that Frazee decided to kill Berreth and, after reflection, acted on his plan. Second-degree murder does not require the prosecution to prove prior thought before the killing and manslaughter charges only require that one person recklessly killed another.

    [...]

    Reed, the prosecutor, forcefully told the jury to convict on first-degree murder and not any lesser charge. She said the state had presented ample evidence that Frazee planned to kill Berreth, including trying to convince Kenney to kill her.

    “Do not fall down the rabbit hole of second-degree murder,” Reed said.

    More than 100 spectators, news reporters and family members of both Frazee and Berreth filled the wooden seats of the Teller County courtroom Monday morning to hear the end of the case. A line started to form outside the Cripple Creek courthouse as early as 6 a.m. — two hours before the doors opened.

    Prosecution delivers powerful closing argument in Frazee trial
    There are six forms of verdict in this case.
    • Verdict count 1– murder in first degree after deliberation. They answer questions: did he use or threaten use of deadly weapon, did defendant cause death. Both should be signed if guilty. Only one if not guilty. Prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
    • Verdict count 2 — solicitation to commit first degree murder (allegations he told Kenney to poison a coffee for Berreth on Sept 23).
    • Verdict count 3 — murder in first degree felony murder. They answer questions: did defendant use or threaten use of deadly weapon, did defendant cause death. One signed if not guilty. Both if found guilty. Prosecutors must prove beyond reasonable doubt.
    • Verdict count 4 — solicitation to commit first degree murder (allegations he told Kenney to kill Berreth with a bat on Oct 21).
    • Verdict count 5 — solicitation to commit first degree murder (allegations he told Kenney to kill Berreth with a pipe on Oct 15).
    • Verdict count 6 — tampering with deceased human body.

    Patrick Frazee trial: 'Sick plot' resulted in fiancee's brutal death by baseball bat, prosecutor says
    Patrick Frazee had one thing on his mind last Thanksgiving as he ran errands with the mother of his child, prosecutors say — and it wasn’t a holiday dinner.

    “While Kelsey Berreth is planning a future, the defendant — this man, this man — is plotting her death,” said prosecutor Beth Reed, jabbing her finger in the defendant's direction during closing remarks at his nationally watched trial.

    "The evidence is compelling. It is overwhelming, and the defendant is guilty."

    [...]

    “Do not check reckless manslaughter!” Reed barked as she encouraged the panel to convict Frazee, 33, of the top charge, with its automatic life sentence in prison.

    Accusing Frazee of a long record of manipulation and lies, Reed frequently turned Frazee’s alleged words against him.

    When one of Frazee’s friends suggested the missing Berreth might resurface, Frazee allegedly told her, “She’s never coming back,” Reed reminded the jury.

    To a different friend, Frazee allegedly said he knew the secret to murder, reportedly telling him, "No body, no crime."

    And when Frazee arrived late to his home on the holiday, he felt sorry for himself for having to celebrate under a cloud, she said.

    “You know how hard it was to eat Thanksgiving Dinner while Kelsey’s in the truck?” Reed said, quoting words attributed to him by his mistress, Krystal Lee, who say Berreth's remains were in a plastic storage bin in the truck bed.

    [...]

    Reed reminded the jury of Berreth’s unforgettable final words, as related by Lee: “Please stop.”

    But additional witness testimony in trial's later days was very damning for Frazee. He allegedly spoke about disposing of her body, and asked a jailmate to kill witnesses and a lead investigator. Hasn't been a whiff of any other person who might be responsible. #PatrickFrazee

    The trial of #PatrickFrazee is now in the hands of a twelve member jury. Frazee is accused of killing his fiancée #KelseyBerreth last Thanksgiving. After a year of twists and heartache, followed by two weeks of bombshell testimony... it’s now the final hours. @NBCNews

    Sam Kraemer @SamKraemerTV
    May noted CBI DNA expert Caitlin Rogers say she wasn’t surprised at the absence of Kenney’s DNA from inside Berreth’s townhome, citing her wearing protective clothing and using bleach.

    “He took a bat into Kelsey’s apartment, and he beat her, and he beat her, and he beat her, and he beat her, and he beat her. And in some point in that, the victim says will you please stop,” May says. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    Sam Kraemer @SamKraemerTV
    He says he beat her another five times, leaving a bloodbath for someone else to clean up. Then, May says he beat her another five times (per expert) and how many ever times after that.

    We are asking you to please stop this defendant from getting away with murder, and find him guilty on all charges,” May says. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    Again, the case is in the jury’s hands. We’ll get a 20-minute heads up (not an hour like previously thought) and go from there. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    Is #PatrickFrazee a murderous manipulator, or a victim of lies? Only jury can say now. Deliberations in progress. Stay tuned for verdict

    'Premeditated, cold and cruel': Prosecutors' final arguments in murder trial
    As the trial of a Colorado man accused of killing his fiancee came to a close, prosecutors Monday described the case as a "deliberate, premeditated, cold and cruel murder."

    [...]

    In closing arguments on Monday, prosecutors said Frazee knew Berreth, 29, was dead because he never attempted to contact her after Nov. 25, 2018.

    Prosecutor Beth Reid also reminded the jury that Frazee was captured on a neighbor's surveillance camera outside Berreth's condo at the same time he claimed he was 40 miles away tending to his cattle.

    [...]

    "Her beaten and battered body is in that box, which he keeps on the back of the truck while he eats Thanksgiving dinner," said Reid.

    [...]

    Referring to the jail notes, Stiegerwald says that’s “proof of (Frazee) being an idiot. Not proof of him doing anything.” He says he’s dealing with a lot, including the death of his father and sibling battle for his father’s assets. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee

    Notably, Patrick Frazee’s public defender called him a fool and stupid, but said that’s not reason alone to convict him. He was talking about the jailhouse notes where Frazee apparently asked for help killing key witnesses in the case.

    The defense argued there is no blood or DNA evidence found on Patrick Frazee. His DNA wasn’t found in Kelseys condo either. There is no video of him leaving her condo with a black tote. Krystal is also never seen on surveillance coming or going from the condo.

    Looking back at my notes, here's a very choice quote from #PatrickFrazee's public defender: “He acts a fool, and he starts to freak out in 11 months of waiting... “It’s proof of him being an idiot, it’s not proof he committed a murder, it’s not proof he killed Kelsey.”

    Jury has all evidence, including the extremely detailed timeline made by a Colorado Springs Police Department criminal analyst, to help them decide. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    The jury deliberating the #PatrickFrazee case has a question, according to DA Dan May. Prosecutors and defense attorneys are headed back into court. More when we have it. @ABC #KelseyBerreth

    The jurors just asked to see the photo of #PatrickFrazee entering #KelseyBerreth’s condo on Nov. 22, 2018. Prosecutors said he was hiding a baseball bat in a sweatshirt, the defense says he didn’t have anything in his hand.

    The jury, now in deliberations, asked to see the security camera image of #PatrickFrazee leaving #KelseyBerreth's condo, per @CarolAMcKinley

    And with that, the case in now in jurys hands. They will deliberate, we dont know how long. We'll be in or near the courthouse waiting for word of a verdict.

    Krystal Lee testified Kelsey’s last words were “please stop.” Dan May ends his closing argument with an appeal to jurors: "We ask you today to 'please stop' this man from getting away with murder."

    11:26 AM - 18 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Blood expert testified that the victim was beaten to death, maybe 15 blows or more. Dan Man stands before jurors and says “He beat her. And he beat her. And he beat her...” He repeats this 15 times

    Prosecution got a rebuttal, led by 4th Judicial District Dan May. He appealed to the emotions – reminding people of the testimony from victims family & coworkers. That she had a daughter

    Re: the testimony from people who said Patrick made troubling comments after Kelsey disappeared, or that he asked for help killing witnesses -- defense said Frazee freaked out ahead of trial. Says its not proof of evidence of guilt, "Its proof of him being an idiot”

    11:26 AM - 18 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Defense questions why Frazee would kill Kelsey during the day, at her home, on a busy holiday when people are more likely to be with family. “It’s the worst plan anybody could come up with,” defense says

    11:26 AM - 18 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    He also attacks Krystal’s credibility. She testified she wanted police to find her. Steigerwald says she didn’t act a woman who wanted to be caught. Calls her whole story "absurd," says nobody would behave that way and it’s not believable

    11:26 AM - 18 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Defense next goes through a list of things missing in the case: including any images of Patrick covered in blood, pictures of him coming/going with a tote from Kelseys house, no DNA of Krystal Lee at murder/clean-up scene

    11:26 AM - 18 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Steigerwald says “If the timeline is wrong, then the whole thing comes crumbling down”
