Now, in shocking footage seen here for the first time, his ex-mistress Kenney can be heard telling investigators that his own mother, Sheila Frazee, 65, stepped out onto the deck of the home she and her son shared while he set about incinerating Berreth’s body and blood-spattered evidence on their land.
Lead CBI investigator Gregg Slater prompts Kenney, ‘You had also mentioned that at one point Patrick’s mom came out and stood on the deck? Looking over towards the house can you tell me where you saw his mom?’
Kenney, 32, who is standing near to the burn site where forensics experts found tell-tale signs of a human body having been consumed, replies, ‘I could just see her step out between the two trees, there’s the wire dog kennel, straight past that, she came out, stood there and then turned and went back into the house.’

She recalled how she helped gather kindling and unloaded two white and four black trash bags of belongings and blood-soaked evidence that she had removed from Berreth’s home earlier that day.
She claimed that Frazee added gasoline and motor oil to speed the blaze and ‘poured gasoline into [a] bucket and pitched it into the fire.’
Asked to list the items she threw into the fire Kenney said, ‘Curtains, pillows, stuffed animals, cleaning supplies, the towels..everything I took from her house. I also threw in all the clothing I was wearing and the shoes I was wearing…a white jumpsuit, grey sweater, black pants, hair and shoe covering and gloves.’
She does not relate where Sheila Frazee was at this point or if she re-emerged from her home at any point.

Despite Frazee’s conviction there are still many who question the extent to which justice has truly been served in this case.
Sheila Frazee pled the Fifth rather than testify against her son at trial. She remains incommunicado, and there are currently no plans to bring further charges in relation to the killing.
In a highly controversial plea deal described by El Paso DA Dan May as ‘a deal with the devil,’ prosecutors only charged Kenney with one single count of evidence tampering for taking Berreth’s cell phone to Idaho where she destroyed it in a bid to throw cops off the real scent and the simple fact that Berreth had never left Teller County.

She unlocked the case for them and admitted to traveling to Colorado on the night of 23rd November in response to Frazee’s request that she come and clean up ‘the mess’ that she understood to be Berreth’s murder.
After the video of Kenney walking detectives through Berreth’s small home and recalling the scene of bloody horror that lay behind the front door, was played to Teller County jury that took less than four hours to convict Frazee on all counts – murder, three counts of solicitation, and felony murder.
Kenney recalled blood on the floor, on the walls, on the fireplace an on one-year-old Kaylee’s toys that lay scattered in the living room where her mother was killed. She told of bloody footprints that tracked up the stairs, blood in the bathroom, blood on kitchen appliance and drapes so drenched in Berreth’s blood she did not even attempt to clean them but removed them entirely and took them to burn.
Kenney also revealed that Frazee had tried to solicit her to kill Berreth on three separate occasions in the months leading up to the murder. He suggested she take a baseball bat and ‘swing away,’ or that she beat Berreth with a metal pipe or poison her favorite Starbucks coffee, a caramel macchiato.

Kenney faces a maximum of three years in jail for the part she played in Berreth’s death. A date for her sentencing is expected to be set at her next case review which is scheduled to be heard in Cripple Creek on 2 December.
In victim impact statements read out by Berreth’s uncle, Scott Morrin, following Frazee’s conviction Berreth’s mother, Cheryl, expressed her dismay at the leniency of Kenney’s potential sentence.
She wrote, ‘The only thing she didn’t do was swing the bat.’
