Barry Morphew, who faced murder charges related to the disappearance of his wife Suzanne, was in court Tuesday trying to get his belongings back that were taken by authorities during their investigation. 

The judge denied that request, saying the items are being held in case of further prosecution. Morphew’s attorney argued that he was wrongfully arrested in 2020, was held without bond for five months, and was subject to numerous prosecutorial errors while litigating the case. 

During yesterday’s hearing the District Attorney’s Office said, “I would hat to give away a murder weapon.” The DA’s office added that the refiling of charges in “not predicated on finding Suzanne’s body.”

The murder case against Morphew was dismissed in April without prejudice, meaning he can be retried for his wife’s murder. 

Suzanne disappeared on Mother’s Day of 2020. Her body has yet to be found.
