The Latest: Woman says she moved phone in Colorado murder
CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. (AP) — The Latest on the case of the death of a missing Colorado woman (all times local):
A woman will testify against the Colorado man accused of killing his fiance after admitting that she moved a cellphone to try to thwart investigators.
Thirty-two-year-old Krystal Kenney of Hansen, Idaho pleaded guilty Friday to tampering with evidence connected to the death of Kelsey Berreth, who was last seen on Thanksgiving.
Berreth’s fiance, Patrick Frazee, is charged with murder and solicitation of murder in the 29-year-old woman’s death.
In a statement in court, Kenney said she learned that Frazee had killed someone.
Kenney says she moved “the victim’s cellphone” in the days after Thanksgiving to keep it from law enforcement.
Police have not found Berreth’s body but have said evidence suggests she was killed at her home in a mountain town near Colorado Springs.
Authorities have not disclosed the nature of the relationship between Kenney and Frazee.
