Suzanne Morphew disappeared after leaving her home for a bike ride on Mother’s Day 2020. Her body has never been found and what happened remains a mystery.
Family members said Barry Morphew was out of town in Denver when she disappeared.
Last year, Barry Morphew told CBS4’s Jamie Leary that he believes she was abducted.
Barry Morphew is charged with first-degree murder, tampering with a corpse, possession of a deadly weapon and attempting to influence a public servant. He is represented by the Eytan Neilson firm.
The main investigator in the case was reassigned and then resigned during an internal affairs investigation. The district attorney is no longer the lead prosecutor and the deputy district attorney resigned and the judge recused himself due to a conflict of interest.
The murder trial has been scheduled to begin May 3.
