GREELEY — A 50-year old Greeley man was found guilty on all counts in the murder of local musician Scott Sessions and Heather Frank in what prosecutors said was a love triangle wrought with jealousy, control and domestic violence.
Kevin Dean Eastman was found guilty on two counts of First Degree Murder, after deliberation; two counts of tampering with a deceased body; and two counts of tampering with evidence in the deaths of Sessions and Frank, 53 and 48 respectively at the time of their deaths. One domestic violence enhancer was also added to the murder charge against Frank.
Eastman was originally arrested by Larimer County Sheriff deputies in February of 2020 in connection with the killing of Sessions, who was found dead near Old Flowers and Pingree Park roads in Bellvue, northwest of Fort Collins on Feb. 10, 2020. Sessions had not been heard from since Feb. 8, 2020 when he told his father he was going to Fort Collins to see a friend.
Nearly a week after Sessions’ body was discovered, Frank was found dead at a home east of Greeley, just off U.S. 34 in Kersey on Feb. 16. It is believed that Sessions’ death occurred Feb. 8, 2020 at the home of Frank.
Eastman was arrested in Kersey at a gas station filling a gas container on Feb. 16th. Frank’s body was found in a wood pile nearby a smoldering burn pit at the Kersey location.
Stan Sessions, Scott’s father, said after the verdict that he felt relieved.
“It’s great that justice was served,” Stan Sessions said. “I’m a scripture-oriented man, and that’s all that Christ asks for is justice be served.”
Eastman will be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning. He faces life without parole for both of the murder charges as well as additional time for the other charges. Complete Colorado will have a full story after sentencing.
