Patrick Frazee was officially charged with six crimes, including first-line murder in a courtroom in Colorado on Friday.

He made a non-guilty plea to all charges related to the death of his fiancé Kelsey Berreth, who was last seen on Thanksgiving.

According to his mistress Krystal Lee Kenney, Frazee killed Bereth with a baseball bat after blindfolding her with a sweater and telling her that she would recommend candles for their scent.

Their daughter then played in the next room, Kenney claims.

Among those watching the proceedings in court were Frazee & # 39; s mother Sheila and Berreth & # 39; s father Darrell, who was in the front row.

Frazee wore a bulletproof vest over his green striped prison equipment and entered the courtroom in cuffs, waiting with the police for everyone to sit, until he was brought to the defense table, despite the fact that he was the first to arrive.

The lawsuit is now starting in October and will allow investigators and prosecutors a few months to find Berreth's body or remains, which would close the biggest gap in their case.

Frazee's lawyer, who had successfully banned video cameras & photographers from the courtroom, also filed a petition with the court on Friday requesting that they not allow court tweets if the court case later this year begins.

The procedure lasted less than 10 minutes, after which Frazee was taken out of court while his mother and Berreth & # 39; s father stayed for a second hearing.

Reporters were then removed from the courtroom for a hearing in the unlawful death penalty that the Berreths have filed against Frazee.

There have been no new developments for months, with the authorities ending their search for a landing in April that they thought might contain the remains of Berreth.

A month prior to the failed search, it was announced that the deputy public prosecutor filed a motion requesting that the records generated by the Teller County Department of Human Services be sealed.

& # 39; The data relate to the crimes charged in this case and include extensive interviews in which the statements of the suspect and witnesses are recorded in this case & # 39 ;, DDA Elizabeth Reed wrote in her motion for disclosure and protective order.

She then commented: & # 39; People believe that these documents contain either incriminating or exculpatory information, since it relates to the criminal allegations in this case. & # 39;

This & # 39; relieving information & # 39; is supposed to be the claim that Berreth was an unsuitable mother who had been made into childcare by both Frazee and his mother.

Frazee's mistress, Krystal Kenney, had previously suggested the content of these allegations when she revealed that the murderer's fiancée told her that Berreth had abused her daughter Kaylee and struggled with drug addiction.

This motion was submitted at the same time as documents describing how Kenney put away crucial evidence in the case.

Kenney was not only charged with cleaning up the horrific murder scene, but also finding a way to get rid of the young mother's personal items.

Legal filings filed in early March state that Kenney did this by throwing Berreth's keys into a gap, using both Berreth's cell phone and the burner phone she used to communicate with Frazee and the victim's gun to a family member to give.

Kenney told the authorities after she first denied knowing Berreth before she finally confessed how the 29-year-old pilot was brutally murdered on Thanksgiving while her daughter was playing in the next room.

The petitioners deposited in the case show that Kenney finally told the authorities that, after seeing Frazee burn the body of his former fiancé in a giant fire on his mother's farm, she was sent to Idaho with strict instructions to ensure that Berreth's items were either hidden or destroyed.

The keys were the first piece of evidence that Berreth had thrown away, and threw them into one of the deep gorges in Malad Gorge State Park.

The deep and steep rock walls make most of the park inaccessible, while the wild rapids make water research almost impossible.

Berreth & # 39; s telephones were then burned by Kenney according to documents, but not before they gave the investigators a trail that led from the Frazee farm in Colorado to the home of Kenney's friend in Idaho.

Berreth's phone last pinged in Idaho on November 25 in Malad Gorge, about the same time that a woman with unknown ties to Kenney was called Frazee's cell.

That woman lives less than 10 miles from Malad Gorge.

The woman, 39, works in the medical sector, so there is a chance that she has been a friend of Kenney's work.

When Kenney came home, she burned Berreth's phone and the burner she spoke to Frazee.

The charred remains of those two devices were then thrown away at the hospital where she worked before being sued in the case.

The last remaining evidence – the gun from Berreth – was given by Kenney to a male friend.

Kenney said it belonged to a family member.

In addition, Kenney sent a text message to Berreth's mother, the workplace of Frazee and Berreth during her drive to Idaho & # 39; with the intention of diverting law enforcement towards Frazee & # 39 ;.

These actions and her delay in sharing this information, which has given a devastating blow to the prosecutors, have now led to the question of whether Kenney should have received an advocacy agreement by the state of Colorado.

At the same time, since she is the only witness in the case, the judgment in the case now depends entirely on her testimony.

There is also still no trace of the remains of Berreth.

Kenney broke into tears when she confessed that he had destroyed Berreth & # 39; s cell phone in February.

She also agreed to testify against Frazee in his murder trial.
