    FRAZEE TRIAL DAY 11 CLOSING ARGUMENTS:
    • Judge Scott Sells first read off jury instructions. There are 22 of them. The jury foreman will have six verdict sheets to sign: first-degree murder after deliberation, solicitation to commit first-degree murder (three times) and first-degree murder felony.

    • Prosecutor Beth Reed delivered a passionate closing statement for the state, saying Frazee clearly concocted a “premeditated, calculated, cold and cruel” plan to murder Kelsey Berreth. Citing cell phone records and surveillance, Reed says nothing in Frazee’s alibi, which he only sought for Nov. 22, matches what he actually did. Frazee’s handwritten alibi said he was tending to cattle around 2:45 p.m., despite neighbor surveillance showing him leave Berreth’s townhome around 4:30 p.m. “While Kelsey Berreth is planning a future, this man is planning to kill her for months,” Reed says. She said Berreth was not someone that would run off and abandon her child, nor was she suicidal. “He’s the only one with the means, the motive and the evidence supports that killed Kelsey Berreth.” Additionally, Reed said Krystal Kenney didn’t have to come forward, but when she did, she told prosecutors everything. She says Kenney’s story matches the available evidence, while none of Frazee’s story does.

    • Normally soft spoken Adam Stiegerwald was as strong spoken as I’ve seen him during his closing argument for Frazee’s defense. “You are being asked to ignore your common sense and the direct evidence that has been presented to you the last two-plus weeks... to believe Krystal Kenney’s story,” he says. He says the entire timeline is made up, citing photos from Berreth’s neighbor’s surveillance camera showing extremely different shadows for the same time period. Stiegerwald says the DA’s office tech expert, Chad Mininger, lied to the jury about that evidence, saying the shadow difference could’ve been caused by clouds or trees. He again stressed the fact Kenney doesn’t come forward until her plea bargain is already signed by the district attorney’s office. “There is no image of Patrick Frazee that supports the prosecution’s case. There is no image of Krystal Kenney that supports the prosecution’s case,” Stiegerwald said. He says testimony from Jonathyn Priest, the blood stain expert, relies heavily on Kenney’s story, and asked if they really believed Kenney. He points out if Frazee really did plan to kill Berreth, why wouldn’t he have done it the night before at Nash Ranch “in the middle of nowhere” than in her townhome? He points out Frazee’s DNA is hardly in Berreth’s townhome and Kenney’s is not altogether. Referring to the jail notes, Stiegerwald says the notes are “proof of (Frazee) being an idiot. Not proof of him doing anything.” Using an analogy, Stiegerwald says the foundation of the state’s case is shaky, and when that happens, it all comes crashing down. He asked the jury see the reasonable doubt and find Frazee not guilty.

    • Given 30 minutes for rebuttal, District Attorney Dan May asked the jury to hold Frazee accountable. “We are asking you to consider all the facts in this case, not apply speculation to them,” May said. He said Kenney is actually direct evidence to the crime & that she is not the state’s witness. He says she is Frazee’s witness. May recalled CBI DNA analyst Caitlin Rogers testifying she wasn’t surprised at the absence of Kenney’s DNA inside Berreth’s townhome, noting she wore protective clothing and used bleach. Mays says the defense wants to speculate on the neighbor surveillance but not talk about the photo of Frazee, Berreth and their daughter at the door while Berreth’s holding her Safeway groceries. He said Frazee beat her five times, and somewhere in that, Berreth said “please stop”. Then, he says Frazee beat her another five times, creating a “large bloodbath for someone else to clean up.” After that, he says Frazee beat her another five times, if not more. May closed with “We are asking you to please stop the defendant from getting away with murder and find him guilty on all charges.”

    • At 11:18 a.m., the case was handed over to the jury. Four jurors were informed they were chosen as alternates (decided before the jury was actually chosen). We’ll get a 20-minute heads up on the verdict coming in. Judge Scott Sells says he’ll dismiss the jury around 5 p.m. if they don’t get a verdict today.

    Defense first calls the prosecution’s timeline of events into question – saying the time of surveillance video capturing Frazee outside Kelsey’s home on the day of the alleged murder is wrong, which means the timeline is “made up.”

    Prosecution acknowledges that motive may be unclear, and tells jury its ok to wonder – was it about custody? Money? Hatred toward victim? Prosecution says determining motive isn’t part of the jurys job in deciding if Frazee is guilty or not.

    Prosecutor Beth Reed started closing arguments by pointing at the door, saying “We all wish #KelseyBerreth could walk through that door right now.” Then she offered a quote one of Frazee’s friends testified the defendant said to them: “That’s never going to happen.” #9News

    Story updated with defense arguments, including #PatrickFrazee's attorney calling his client an idiot. Basic argument? Not enough physical evidence. #KelseyBerreth
    1:17 PM - 18 Nov 2019

    Kelsey Berreth murder case: Closing arguments begin in Teller County District Court
    [...]

    The attorney also said testimony that Frazee once told a friend that he figured out a way to kill Berreth and that there’s no crime if there’s no body are examples of Frazee “acting a fool” and not proof of intent. Steigerwald also said the jury should not give too much weight to testimony Friday that Frazee asked a jailmate to kill investigators and witnesses in the case. The notes, which Steigerwald did not deny came from Frazee, are evidence of Frazee cracking under the stress of a potential life sentence, not proof that Frazee is a killer.

    “It’s proof of him being an idiot,” Steigerwald said.

    [...]

    In a brief statement after the defense’s closing arguments, Fourth Judicial District Attorney Dan May asked the jury to “to please stop this defendant from from getting away with murder.”

    “He took a bat into Kelsey’s apartment, and he beat her and he beat her and he beat her,” May said. “And at some point during that Kelsey said, ‘Please stop.’ And he beat her, and he beat her.”

    Yes they can. They asked about wanting to see a surveillance still of Frazee at the door to Berreth’s townhome, where there looks to be a void between his left side & the door. It wasn’t in their evidence. My colleagues say they got to see it.

    Patrick Frazee guilty on all counts, sentenced to life in prison
    A jury has found Patrick Frazee guilty of all 6 counts for the November 2018 death of Kelsey Berreth. The judge went forward with sentencing right after the verdict was read. Frazee was sentenced to the maximum of life in prison without the possibility of parole plus 156 years, plus 5 years with parole for solicitation. He was put in handcuffs and escorted out of the courtroom.
    • first degree murder (after deliberation)
    • solicitation to commit first-degree murder
    • first degree murder felony
    • solicitation
    • solicitation
    • tampering with a deceased human body
    Our Sam Kraemer reports the Berreths shed tears and held each other close as the verdict was read. The prosecutors were stoic at the time. Defense attorney Adam Stiegerwald shook his head as the guilty verdicts were read.

    [...]

    The judge had Frazee stand up in court as he was sentenced. Judge Sells told Frazee his actions were vicious, senseless, without reason. That Kelsey spent her last night "caring for you, and you viciously beat her to death the following day. After you beat her, you burned her body like it was trash. Kelsey Berreth was a wonderful mother, beloved daughter, your crimes deserve absolute max punishment and I intend to do that."

    [...]

    “The courtroom is where the truth... comes to light. Ladies and gentlemen, the evidence compels you to one verdict and one verdict only. That is he is guilty of first-degree murder after deliberation. He is guilty of soliciting Krystal Kenney. And he is guilty of tampering with a human deceased body.”

    […]

    Patrick Frazee found guilty of first-degree murder in death of fiancée, Kelsey Berreth
    [...]

    Frazee, 33, was found guilty on all charges: two counts of murder, three counts of solicitation to commit murder and tampering with a deceased human body. He had denied killing Berreth, 29, and pleaded not guilty. The jury trial began Nov. 1.

    In closing arguments, prosecutors argued that Frazee had been planning Berreth's death for months, while the defense called evidence presented during trial "circumstantial" and "made up."
