A Twin Falls nurse is expected to plead guilty to at least one charge in connection to the missing Colorado mom Kelsey Berreth, according to ABC News.

32-year-old Krystal Lee is scheduled to appear in a Colorado courtroom this week to enter a plea deal with prosecutors, according to Lee's relatives who spoke anonymously because the plea deal has not been publicly announced. Family members say Lee has been cooperating with investigators, who have been looking into the allegations that Lee may have disposed of evidence.

It's not yet clear what charge or charges Lee is expected to plead guilty to, or whether she'd face jail time. Attempts to reach Lee's attorney have been unsuccessful, according to ABC.

A spokeswoman for District Attorney Dan May would not confirm or comment on any potential plea, but she did confirm that Lee has a court date set for Friday, Feb. 8, in Teller County.

Berreth's fiancee, Patrick Frazee, was arrested in December in connection to Berreth's murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder. He has not yet entered a plea.

Berreth was last seen Thanksgiving Day, shopping with the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Kaylee, at a Woodland Park, Colorado, supermarket. Three days after Berreth vanished, investigators said her cell phone signal was detected in Idaho. Her body has not been found.
