    PF's life was spared by grace he never deserved and will likely never understand. MOO

    Patrick Frazee trial: Rancher gets life term plus 156 years in 'vicious, senseless' murder
    [...]

    Frazee’s mother, Sheila Frazee, walked straight to her SUV, staring through her windshield and pulling away without responding to requests for comment from a Gazette reporter at her driver's side window.

    In the hallway after sentencing, Jennifer Viehman, one of three prosecutors, wiped tears as a crowd swirled around her.

    The victim’s mother, Cheryl Berreth, phoned in to Frazee's sentencing, but opted not to speak. But in a searing letter to the court, she said Frazee’s crime robbed her family of a “devoted, caring mother,” and left the couple’s toddler daughter to “call out for mama in the middle of the night.”

    [...]

    Prosecutors opted in July not to pursue the death penalty against Frazee. On Monday, Cheryl Berreth said that while it would have been "well deserved," her family did not ask for it because they wanted Frazee to seek forgiveness, citing their religious beliefs.

    YEP, time to lose that bleach blonde look KK. It really doesn't look good on anyone, especially YOU.

    Just sitting here this morning thinking on the victory we saw yesterday, Justice for Kelsey and her family!

    But I feel a profound sadness as well. @mustloveco 's final pics, the sun setting in Cripple Creek and the flowers and Macchiato she placed on Kelsey's bench at night, brought home the terrible truth of how a bright and beautiful light was taken from her family and the world. Tears of joy yesterday, Tears of sadness this morning :*(

    Bless you @mustloveco for doing what you did. A beautiful gesture to remember Kelsey. Those pictures will forever be in my mind and heart. I've never been to WP and surrounding area, but I truly feel I've "been" there thanks to you!

    :*( Such dignity,and grace through,and through. I have so much respect,and admiration for her. I hope she can feel that, and know the love everyone here at WS has for her,and family. Ya'll know I wouldn't handle things so gracefully, I would be spitting nails,and getting time outs,and bans. What a magnificent Lady she is.

    This jury did an outstanding job in this case! They appeared to give their undivided time and interest in paying attention to what was being said. Then, asking for clarification with pictures on points in question.
    Way to go!
    PF is probably still in denial of his sentence! This judge saw PF for who he is and knew he wasn’t safe on the streets to other people.

    Such a shame that he lured Kelsey into his den of deceits!

    Kelsey was a beautiful girl with a fascinating wonderful life ahead of her.
    May she rest in peace knowing the devil who took her life will never hurt her daughter or family again.

    I've thought of the same. At the very least, it would show support for the Berreth family. I am tempted to write one myself.

    Boy, what a wakeup call KK had with this trial. First the other woman at Thanksgiving and then the prison notes. I felt like she was still trying to appeal to him with "he was my best friend". Has it feel now, KK?

    MOO

    [​IMG]Reposting the Press Conference by DA May & Co. yesterday afternoon:



    I found this to be an incredibly powerful and moving presentation.

    This thing was word perfect.

    Dan May is not just a man of superior intellect.

    He's also a man of integrity, character, and compassion.

    When Dan got choked up, I felt my own throat constrict.

    Kelsey could not have had a more noble champion.

    Yes, I saw it and appreciated the prosecutors answering reporters! I wish I could have heard them work.

    The bolded is making my heart break for Baby K.

    Can you imagine such anguish from a grandparent, who's lost her daughter, hearing that from her granddaughter?

    That poor baby girl. Calling for her Mama in the middle of the night- she went from two parents raising her, to MaF's with Patrick, then to the Berreth's warm, loving and safe home, which was frightening and confusing her her, being alone. I don't know how well she knew Kelsey's family, but being just a baby, they could have been like strangers to her, where they lived so far away and didn't see her often. She was just barely a year old when Kelsey was killed, and she pretty much only had her parents and MaF in her life, in terms of adults that she trusted.

    Hopefully darling Baby K is adjusting well.

    GOOD MORNING! Like @AgeofAquaruis , I slept like a baby and woke up feeling much better. Yesterday was a long one for me-- glad you all encouraged me to go, bc I am typically a very shy person.

    A few things I didnt get to mention as it was so busy, service was lousy, and I going thru the thread it seems like the site was being slow.

    It seemed there were a few folks sitting on SF side outside the courtroom, while she read. Although I have not seen her in person, (just tv, tweets, etc) it appears as though she has lost a lot of weight. Stone cold face still, though. A couple, a man with a beard, and maybe a lawyer. Not sure if they were there with her or not, bc she did not talk to them, but everyone seemed to be far away.

    People started getting up and walking toward the courtroom door, circling and waiting. This is when WS started giving me problems. An officer split the crowd to make room for PF coming up. He mustve came thru the elevator, bc all of a sudden I look to my right and he is walking right next to me, noone in between. The same stone-cold squint and purced lips as his mother, in Blue and white striped shirt and his beloved non-khaki jeans, looking straight forward and moving quickly. We were all allowed in shortly thereafter. There werent many non-media people inside the courtroom, maybe 10-15. Quite a few empty seats. My heart was beating so fast, so much of yesterday. I sat three seats in, and could see PF from there. Unsure of where SF sat. Kindof tunnel vision at this point, nervous. As the verdict was read, and the jurors were asked if this was true, it never crossed my mind to look over at PF. I watched every juror say "yes" "yes" "yes" "yes" and I wanted to scream or hug or highfive but it remained quiet and classy as Kelsey and her family always are, and my heart was beating so fast for the victory and justice. The media started getting up and leaving, which I thought meant it was over, so I left too (stupid move, I wouldve loved to be there for victim statements). I went outside and waited with others for PF to come to the side, but as you all saw, they blocked off the view and that was really annoying.

    Ooo! I think you might be the newest shiny person in my life!
    I have a polish drawer, it smells so bad when I open it I about pass out!
    I have maybe 30 bottles in there.
    A room?
    Like your own "me" and my nails?
    Go you!
    I'm going to keep reading, hopefully we will find out her favorite color!
    I'll paint mine as well!
    I'd love to see a picture of your room! (If you want to share privately!!)

    They should paint JF's nails every week until he dies.
    That's the kind of thing that drives a narcissist crazy!
    I also wish that Cheryl's SEETHING letter was painted on the walls of cell!
    Moo

    You know what I loved the most about this team? They let their professional guard down, if you will, and showed human emotion. They let the tears flow without shame. They showed compassion toward Mr. Berreth. Quite refreshing.

    They may have won the case, but their hearts tell me this was more than just a case for them.

    I have one! Does KK have other trials she has to testify at before her sentencing? If so, what trials? I thought I read this somewhere in here. Confused me at the moment and I wish I would have asked then because now I can't find it. Or maybe I just misunderstood a statement?
