COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado authorities have released a hold on a Woodland Park town house after a jury convicted Patrick Frazee of Florissant of murdering his fiancee and mother of his child, Kelsey Berreth. Prosecutors said they believe he murdered her in the home.

The Gazette reported Wednesday that Frazee was found guilty last week in the death of 29-year-old Berreth on Thanksgiving Day 2018.

Authorities say law enforcement officers have returned to the home to remove evidence over the past year.

Court officials say the residence needs to be discharged and is likely to go to Berreth’s family who could decide to sell.

Real estate agents say the home could carry a stigmatized property label if it is listed for sale or leased.

Agents say a law change means sellers don’t have to disclose if a murder occurred in a marketable home.
