The district attorney for the 11th Judicial District has dismissed the murder charge against Barry Morphew without prejudice.

Judge Ramsey Lama accepted the motion to dismiss after documents were filed on Tuesday morning.

Morphew’s defense attorney argued in court that the case should be dismissed with prejudice so that it could not be refiled.

It follows less than 10 days before the murder case was set to go on trial.

Morphew was arrested in May 2021 and formally charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence and attempting to influence the public following the disappearance of his wife Suzanne Morphew on May 9, 2020, the day before Mother’s Day.


Morphew’s daughters, who have supported him, addressed the court Tuesday.

“We fully support this dismissal. We know our dad didn’t have anything to do with it,” Mallory stated.

Macy said she was looking forward to taking time to heal and “hopefully finding out what really happened to our mom.”

Suzanne is presumed dead by police, and her body has never been found.

In the motion, investigators believe they’re close to finding Suzanne’s body.
