Fiance of missing Colorado woman faces five murder-related charges

Man Accused Of Murdering Fiancee Kelsey Berreth Appears In Court

Patrick Frazee, the man accused of killing his fiancee Kelsey Berreth, was charged with five felony counts on Monday morning by Teller County prosecutors.

Frazee is set to appear in a motions hearing Friday and a preliminary hearing on January 29.

Court documents stated that "in the course of or in furtherance of that crime, or in the immediate flight therefrom, the death of Kelsey Berreth, a person, other than one of the participants, was cause by anyone".

The Colorado Public Defender's Office, which represents Frazee, declined to comment, citing its standing policy of not commenting on pending cases outside of court.

"Under Colorado law, we file separate counts under different theories of first-degree murder".

Frazee, 32, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree felony murder and three counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder. The felony murder count claims that Frazee, and possibly others, committed a robbery or attempted to do so, and that Berreth was killed in that incident, according to court documents.

In Frazee's first court appearance on December 27, the judge ordered that their 1-year-old daughter be temporarily placed in the custody of her grandparents, Berreth's parents. Residents in the community said Patrick is well-liked and they would be shocked if he is found guilty.

Frazee's previous lawyer told CBS News that Berreth and Frazee had a good relationships, with ups and downs that many do, but for all intents and purposes it was a normal relationship.

Berreth, 29, was last seen publicly on November 22 when a security camera captured her entering a grocery store in the small mountain town of Woodland Park, Colorado, about 90 miles southwest of Denver.

"While we haven't found Kelsey at this time, information has been developed that is helping to narrow down our search", Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young said last week.

May will also hear a request by prosecutors to conduct "consumptive testing" on an unspecified piece of evidence.
