Researchers on Friday told a Colorado court that they were using cadaver sniffing dogs to discover part of a tooth that belonged to a woman allegedly beaten to death by her husband, who then burned her body with the help of his mistress as two farm hands confirming Krystal Lee Kenney & # 39; s testimony.
FBI agents and investigators confirmed the dramatic testimony presented earlier in the week by the star witness of the prosecutor, Kenney, who described in detail how she and her lover, Patrick Frazee, threw away the body of Kelsey Berreth.
FBI special agent Donald Peterson testified on Friday that he was leading the excavation of the fire pit on the Frazee farm.

Peterson told jurors that he thought he found a tooth near the well KMGH TV.
Kenney, a nurse in Idaho, told jury members that she had an affair with Frazee for years.
Kenney, who became Frazee's mistress in 2015, shared the filthy details of their relationship and claims that he demanded that she clean up the murder scene after harassing Berreth on Thanksgiving.
She testified that on Thanksgiving Day she received a phone call from a & # 39; rattled & # 39; Frazee told me to clean up a mess.
Prosecutors tried to confirm Kenney's testimony on Friday.
Prosecutors summoned witnesses who confirmed the testimony of Krystal Lee Kenney (above), who told jurors that she helped Frazee throw away Berreth's body.
They called to the witness stand two teenage boys who said they were helping Frazee move a trough on his ranch and cover part of the area where a burn had occurred, according to KUSA TV.
During his testimony, Kenney described watching Frazee burn a black bag with Berreth's remains in a trough on his ranch in Florissant, Colorado.
The boys, who worked as ranch hands, testified that Frazee often burned trash, so they didn't suspect anything unusual.
Friday prosecutors also called to the witness stand, the owner of another ranch where Kenney claims that Frazee had stored the bag before he burned it.
Julie Nash testified that Frazee rented her property for his cattle and had access to a red hay barn.
Two months after the arrest of Frazee last December, Kevin Hurst, an independent K-9 investigator, and Radar, his cadaver sniffing bloodhound, searched the ranch.
Hurst, who is a non-profit company that helps law enforcement agencies that cannot afford K-9 units, testified that Radar discovered human remains in a discolored area in a hay bale.
Hurst testified that Radar never had a false hit. He said the dog can detect the scent of a human body even if the area has been washed with bleach of industrial strength.
Frazee defense lawyers who cross-examined Hurst asked if he had ever worked in hay before. Hurst replied that he had not done that.
Jury members also heard of Frank Hurst, a handler of cadaver dog Radar who reportedly discovered human remains on a ranch that had leased Frazee
Brian Eberle, another carcass dog handler, testified that he had sniffed his dog, Lucy, out of Berreth's apartment on December 4.
According to Eberle, Lucy discovered human winding up near the rear bumper of Berreth & # 39; s car.
Prosecutors say this confirms Kenney & # 39; s testimony this week when she claimed that she had left garbage bags with bloody stuff at Berreth's car as she closed the front door.
Kenney also testified that she had intentionally left some blood in Berreth's house in the hope that investigators would find it, but Eberle testified that Lucy did not detect anything in the flat.
She testified Thursday that when Frazee called her home the day after the alleged murder at Berreth, she saw blood on the floor and blood on the wall.
"There was blood in front of the stove and dishwasher, and there were bloody footprints on the floor," Kenney told the jury.
On Thursday, Kenney was asked by prosecutor Jennifer Viehman, where Frazee and Berreth & # 39; s daughter, Kaylee, were allegedly murdering Berreth on Thanksgiving 2018.
Kenney claimed that Kaylee was in the back room in her sweater while Frazee bluffed his fiance with a bat, the Denver Channel reports.
Prosecutors showed the witness pictures of the scene and of the toddler in her sweater, with tears from Kenney.

The woman said she had filled six bags of trash and other things while cleaning up at Berreth's house.
Kenney also claimed that she left specific blood splashes for authorities to discover, and told prosecution that she used Windex and bleach to clean the home.
During cross-examination, Frazee's lawyer wondered why she had not warned the authorities of the conspiracy when she & # 39; multiple chances & # 39; had to do this.
Kenney was also asked how she was able to make a plea before making a formal statement for researchers, KIVI reports.

When she arrived at his home in Colorado with the cleaning supplies he had brought her with, he ordered her to clean the bathroom footprints, Kenney told Wednesday of the murder case.
She says he also asked her to look for Berreth & # 39; s tooth in an opening.
Kenney told the court that Frazee said that Berreth & # 39; s last words begged her fiance to & # 39; please stop & # 39 ;.
She also revealed how she was pregnant with his baby in March 2016 – while she was still married to her husband and Frazee was dating Kelsey Berreth.
Krystal testified that Frazee did not even respond when she told him the news, but expressed concern about being the father of a & # 39; bastard child & # 39 ;.

He also said to Krystal: & # 39; Well, I think you're a baby killer or not. & # 39;
She told the court that she had broken off the baby.
Frazee greeted his ex by staring her down as she entered the courtroom, according to Fox 21.
Krystal described her tumultuous relationship with Frazee and said the two first met in 2006 during a dance and were together for a year before they decided to split up.
A year later she saw him again when he offered to give her a Border Collie puppy.
She made the drive to Colorado and upon arrival she was told that she had to break it with her then fiancé and had to join Frazee again.
Krystal said she refused that offer, but left with the dog, which led to a threat to her ex.
& # 39; Patrick said if he didn't get the check, he would come to Idaho to kill the dog, & # 39; Krystal said KTVB.
Frazee popped up one day before Krystal & # 39; s wedding and asked her to cancel the wedding, she said.

In the next five years there was no contact and Krystal had two children with her husband, but when they reached a difficult period in 2015, she contacted Frazee.
The following year she became pregnant, but aborted the child and told Frazee that she had a miscarriage.
She turned off their relationship for a while and asked for her husband's divorce.
Krystal then came across much of the information she had shared earlier this year in her interview with authorities, including how Frazee reportedly asked her four times to kill Berreth.
In one case she had to give her drug-infused coffee. Krystal said she had brought Berreth the coffee in case Frazee was watching, but not poisoned as directed.
Then she was asked to take Berreth & # 39; s life with a baseball bat, but back on the scene, in case she was followed, she claimed.
Allegedly Frazee Krystal supplied a metal pipe and asked her to eliminate Berreth by slapping her in the neck.
Berreth, 29, was last seen nearly a year ago with the couple's daughter near her home in Woodland Park, about two hours south of Denver.
Frazee has denied killing her.
