Authorities in Colorado may unseal the arrest affidavit for accused wife-killer Barry Morphew, a week after he as arrested on first-degree murder and other charges in the death of his wife Suzanne Morphew.
Suzanne disappeared on Mother’s Day 2020, and prosecutors announced Barry Morphew’s arrest late last week, nearly a year to the day that Suzanne went missing. Investigators have not yet found a body, and until now have said very little about what specific evidence led to Barry Morphew’s arrest.
CBS Denver now reports that the arrest affidavit could be unsealed as early as Thursday. A judge ordered the affidavit held until at least May 13 after Morphew’s public defender argued against its release, but is apparently expected to make a decision soon on whether to unseal it.
In addition to the first-degree murder charge, Morphew is charged with tampering with physical evidence and attempting to influence a public servant. He is behind held without bail in Chafee County.
