Barry Morphew’s Prosecution for Using Missing Wife’s Ballot Was Harassment, Attorney Says
On April 19, the prosecution of Barry Morphew for the alleged murder of his missing wife, Suzanne Morphew, came to a screeching halt when a judge granted 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley’s request for the case to be dismissed without prejudice — a distinction that allows for charges to be refiled. Stanley stated at the time that this move would give law enforcement authorities a chance to find Suzanne’s body, thought to be in a remote location then covered in snow.
But Suzanne’s remains have yet to be located; Stanley, who’s still the 11th Judicial District DA despite having subsequently had her law license suspended for failing to comply with continuing legal education requirements, has not responded to Westword’s request for an update on the search. Meanwhile, Barry Morphew pleaded guilty last week to forgery for turning in Suzanne’s ballot in the 2020 election. The offense earned him a one-year deferred sentence.
