Morphew attorneys file motion to dismiss case after investigator calls arrest “premature”

Barry Morphew’s defense team has filed a motion to dismiss the first-degree murder case against their client based on recently released discovery that included remarks of an investigator that formally worked on the case.

Morphew’s defense team filed the motion in Fremont County court on Feb. 9, according to documents released Tuesday. Prosecutors filed a response to the defense’s motion on Feb. 23, calling the defense’s motion “utter nonsense.”

Attorneys representing Morphew, 54, who is accused of murdering his wife Suzanne Morphew, claim remarks made by Colorado Bureau of Investigations agent Joseph Cahill during a Dec. 2, 2021, internal affairs interview are grounds to dismiss the case.

Agent Cahill, who is now assigned to the bureau’s marijuana enforcement division, worked on the Morphew investigation shortly after Suzanne Morphew was reported missing from her Chaffee County home on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10, 2020.
