Idaho nurse sentenced to 3 years for role in Kelsey Berreth’s death
CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. — An Idaho nurse was sentenced to three years in prison for her role in Kelsey Berreth’s death.
Berreth, who grew up in the Moses Lake area, was murdered in Colorado shortly after Thanksgiving 2018. Her body has never been recovered.
Krystal Lee Kenney took a plea deal in order to help put Berreth’s former fiancee, Patrick Frazee, in prison. He was convicted and sentenced to life for her murder last November.
Kenney admitted to having a relationship with Frazee and pleaded guilty to tampering with physical evidence. She told prosecutors about Frazee’s plan to kill Berreth and how he asked her to carry out the crime.
Kenney told prosecutors Frazee beat Berreth to death and put her body in a tote. She said she was with him when he burned the tote on his Colorado property and helped clean up the crime.
A judge sentenced Kenney to the maximum punishment for her involvement. Following her three-year prison sentence, she will be on probation for one year.
