CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. (AP) - The Latest on the trial of a Colorado man accused of killing his fiancee (all times local):

5:20 p.m.

The trial of a Colorado man accused of killing his fiancee and burning her body on his ranch has begun.

A jury was seated Friday for 33-year-old Patrick Frazee’s trial, and lawyers on both sides presented their opening arguments later in the day.

Frazee has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Kelsey Berreth, who was last seen nearly a year ago with the couple’s daughter near her home about two hours south of Denver. Her body hasn’t been found despite several searches, including at a landfill.



A former Idaho nurse who pleaded guilty to evidence tampering in the case for moving Berreth’s cell phone has agreed to testify against him under a plea agreement.
