The jury in the Patrick Frazee murder trial saw Tuesday images of surveillance that both the defense and the prosecutor strengthen their case.
Kelsey Berreth was seen on her neighbor's motion-activated security camera & # 39; s just before 1:30 pm on the day she went missing while she entered her home with daughter Kaylee, a bouquet of roses and Patrick Frazee.
Frazee comes and leaves the house 11 times over a three-hour period that day, while Berreth is never seen again while leaving the building.
At the same time Frazee is never seen with the black bag in which he would have put his fiance's body.
That is a blessing for the defense, Frazee's lawyers argued, while the prosecutor could argue that Frazee dismantled his fiancé piece by piece after chopping her corpse.
Jury members also discovered on Tuesday that Frazee Berreth had paid $ 700 per month in child benefits, while she had recently been in default with a $ 72,000 loan.
Frazee stopped making those support payments in July, and the next month is when he asked his mistress Krystal Kenney to kill Berreth, researchers say.

Kenney claims that she was asked to kill Berreth four times before Frazee took matters into her own hands and killed the young mother after he first blindfolded her and let her guess the scent of a candle.
Their preschool daughter Kaylee was only a few feet away according to the court documents.
There was also a little family drama in the courtroom on Tuesday when Sean Frazee took the position and revealed in his testimony that his younger brother was two hours later for Thanksgiving dinner and parked his car a good distance from the house.
Sean testified that his charge told him that Berreth visited her sick grandmother when she was reported missing, and also suggested at some point that she might be in rehab to treat her alcoholism.
It was also revealed that Sean was the one who ordered Patrick to hand over his phone to the police, a movement that revealed the case and helped officers find Kenney.
Sean said he and his two siblings are currently fighting for their father's estate, which is valued at $ 400,000.
And he made his feelings very clear about the defendant after completing his testimony on Tuesday, rolling his eyes to his brother before he walked straight out of the courtroom.
The Frazee telephone was also the focus of a testimony from a Verizon employee, who actually contacted the police after he had a bizarre encounter with the suspect.
& # 39; Don't believe what they say about me, & # 39; Frazee said to the employee, who remarked that the accused murderer looked nervous.
Frazee, who went to the store three weeks after Berreth went missing, then asked if information could be retrieved from a phone on his account if it was physically destroyed.
CBI agent Gregg Slater testified on Tuesday that custody papers with a date in August were found at Frazee's house when police searched the property in December, and that the hawkish scent of human dissolution was picked up on the bumper of Kelsey's car .
In their opening statement, prosecutors stated that Frazee was a liar and a cheater who for months spent spreading false information about his fiancée, including defeating and even burning their then-born daughter, Kaylie.
& # 39; This is the face of a cold, calculating manipulator & # 39 ;, prosecutor Jennifer Viehman stated.
& # 39; This face, this man, is a murderer. & # 39;
Prosecutors said he became a murderer on November 22 when he bluffed Berreth with a bat while Kaylee was around.
He then ordered Kenney to clear the stage and throw away evidence that she later revealed to investigators.
However, the defense jumped on the fact that Kenney did not provide this information voluntarily, but rather gave it to them after it was tracked down and encountered a possible trial.
Frazee & # 39; s public defender did not accuse Krystal of murder or offered an alternative theory, but emphasized that Frazee played no role in Berreth's disappearance and that Krystal was a liar.
& # 39; As you begin to hear the evidence and hear the facts, you will realize that there are serious fundamental problems in this case & # 39 ;, Ashley Porter said.

The first witness to take the position was Kelsey & # 39; s mother Cheryl Berreth.
She remained calm until she remembered her last conversation with her daughter and the & # 39; get well soon & # 39; text she sent fFazee, a few hours before he allegedly hit Berreth so hard that her teeth let go of her jaw
Cheryl finally flew down to find out where her daughter was herself, and said she and her son filled almost two pages in a notebook when they decided to list all the things that seemed to be in Berreth's house. .
Her time in the gallery lasted until Monday, when Cheryl revealed that the mother of the suspect Berreth was a & # 39; prostitute & # 39; called.
Berreth & # 39; s brother Clint took the next step and presented what could be seen as a possible motive in the case after he shared a text message from his sister claiming that Patrick & # 39; s older brother or sister had Erin lawyer hired to dig dirt over the prosecutor's murderer.
The police officer who interviewed Frazee for the first time also took the position and showed camera images of the man while he was emotionless and answered their questions.
Frazee told the police that the two had gone their own way when they came to talk to him at his ranch on December 3 and then repeatedly claimed that Berreth was in rehab.
Berreth & # 39; s boss at DOSS Aviation said the missing mother sent a text message a few days before she went missing to announce that Frazee would be coming to their company party.
He described her excitement and said that the texts he received after she went missing differed considerably from their usual exchanges, which were submitted with exclamation marks and emojis.
It was also unveiled for the first time
Earlier in the day, Clint also described how he thought something was wrong as soon as he and his mother arrived at Berreth & # 39; s house and noticed that the heat was on, hardened cinnamon rolls were left out and everything seemed to be swept clean.
It was on the second day that the two waved at Berreth's house that he saw a little bit of blood in the bathroom, forcing him to call the police.
& # 39; I went outside and told my mother that & # 39; I think there is blood on the toilet & # 39 ;, Clint recalled on the standard.
Berreth had already been reported missing by the two a day earlier, so Frazee was interviewed on December 3 by a local police member.
The officer first made telephone contact and then spoke personally with Frazee.
