Barry Morphew requests a new trial date, change of venue in the wife’s murder case

CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) – The defense of Barry Morphew, a man from Chaffee County who is accused of killing his wife, requested, among other things, that he be allowed to visit his daughters on Wednesday.

Morphew has been ordered to wear an ankle monitor and is not allowed to leave Chaffee County.

His defense attorneys submitted a list of requests, including a change of venue, to move the trial date up by a week to April 25 and a change in his bond orders.

The defense said he wants to visit his daughters in Gunnison County.

Last May, he was formally charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence and attempts to influence the public, all in connection with the disappearance in May 2020 by his wife, Suzanne Morphew.

Suzanne’s body has not yet been found, but when a judge allowed Morphew to place a half-million dollar bond back in September 2021, it was stated that there was enough probable cause to charge him with Suzanne’s murder, but not enough to keep him detained.

A response to Morphew’s defense team requests could be made at exercise hearings scheduled for Jan. 24 and 25.
