    Found Deceased - Co - Madelaine Loh, 27, Delta County, 19 Jun 2018 *arrest*

    7/1/19 Update: Next status conference hearing for murder & fraud is 7/15. 7/15/19: District Judge Steven Schultz rejected most of the defense’s motion to suppress original interview with LE. Archibeque was clearly interrogating Macias-Moreno about Loh’s disappearance, but the circumstances surrounding the interview “suggest the defendant was not in custody when he made his confession in this case,” Schultz said. Next plea hearing on 8/12. 8/12/19: Plea hearing moved to 9/12.
    9/12/19 Update: Plead guilty to 2nd degree murder as an act of domestic violence in the 2018 strangulation death of Madelaine. His plea agreement calls for between 25 & 40 years in prison. The felony-2 offense is classed as a crime of violence. Sentencing has been set for Nov. 15. Macias-Moreno was initially charged with 1st degree murder & animal cruelty; these charges were dismissed under the plea deal. 2nd degree murder is a class-2 felony that carries a sentence between 8 & 24 years, but because Macias-Moreno plead guilty to an offense that is categorized as a crime of violence, the sentencing range became 16 to 48 years. He stipulated to a sentence of at least 25 years, but not more than 40 as part of his plea.

    Still Missing - CO - Kelsey Berreth, 29, Woodland Park, Teller County, 22 Nov 2018 - *Arrest* #65

    11/15/19 Day 10: The judge is holding a private hearing to rule on this new evidence 'prior' to court starting. If the court reaches 5 p.m. before both sides rest, the closing arguments will get pushed to Monday morning. There is no deliberation planned for the weekend. State witnesses: Retired police officer Jonathyn Priest (crime scene expert/blood stain pattern analyst). JB (aka John Doe) (Frazee's fellow prisoner that he solicited to have key prosecution witness & other witnesses murdered). CBI lead investigator Gregg Slater (read a total of 17 letters sent to Bentley, mostly written on napkins, read all of them, and said they appeared to be in Frazee's handwriting; Bentley came forward with these letters only on Monday, 11/11/19). State rests their case. Defense rested their case without calling any witnesses. Defense is arguing for a lesser charge like manslaughter because the DA took Lee's testimony as gospel. Prosecution holds fast for first degree premeditated murder. Judge is deciding. Based on jury instruction arguments, seems like jury will have the option to convict Frazee on lesser charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter instead of just first-degree murder. Instructions will be finalized this afternoon. Closing arguments start on Monday, 11/18.
    *Child: Review hearing on 12/5/19.
    *Krystal Jean Lee (Kenney) – Plea deal-plead guilty to 1 count of tampering with physical evidence, a class 6 felony, with an open sentence. Will testify at Frazee’s trial. Review hearing on 12/2. That will NOT be a sentencing date. Assuming the trial is complete, she will report to probation on that day with sentencing scheduled for 8 weeks after that. Judge Sells says if the trial is delayed, he plans to just delay that review hearing as needed.
