The Colorado man charged with murdering his missing wife has been released on $500,000 bail.
CBS 4 obtained video of Barry Morphew leaving the Chaffee County Jail, where he has been in custody since his arrest in May 2021. Morphew is charged with multiple counts, including first-degree murder, for the presumed death of his wife Suzanne Morphew. Suzanne disappeared in May 2020, and her body has not been found.
Following a preliminary hearing, a judge determined last week that the state has enough evidence to proceed with a murder trial.
As the video shows, Morphew’s two daughters were present during his release, and drove away with their father in a pickup truck. Morphew reportedly put up $500,000 cash bail for his release.
