    CA - Joseph Morrow on trial in the '91 murder of Donna Morrow

    14-year-old murder case opens in San Mateo court

    REDWOOD CITY After a police investigation that spanned 12 years, and after numerous delays in court, the murder trial for Joseph Morrow finally starts today in San Mateo County Superior Court.

    Morrow, 57, is accused of killing his wife, Donna, 37, after a loud argument in their Menlo Park home on Dec. 19, 1991, and hiding her body.

    Joseph Morrow used a fake name to flee the country not long after his wife's disappearance, while the couple's four young children were sent to live with relatives.

    He was captured in the Philippines in January 2003. Nine months later, police acting on a tip from Morrow's sister were led by the family's former handyman to Donna Morrow's bones. She was buried 8-feet-deep on undeveloped property in Los Gatos that Joseph Morrow once owned.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, who is prosecuting the case, said he plans to prove that Joseph Morrow killed his wife because the couple was headed for divorce, and the business owner didn't want to lose half of his assets under California's divorce law.

    A Menlo Park man was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years to life for murdering his wife 16 years ago, and the couple's three adult daughters begged that their father be freed on parole...

    Joseph Morrow, 59, agreed to the sentence in a deal last month with San Mateo County prosecutors for the killing of his wife, Donna Morrow, 37. With credit for time served, he will be eligible for parole when he is about 72.

    The couple's daughters were school-age children, all under 10 years old, when their mother disappeared in 1991 just before Christmas.
