Still Missing - CO - Suzanne Morphew, 49, Chaffee Co, 10 May 2020 *arrest* #86

11/19/21 Update: Next hearing is scheduled for 12/14/21 at 1pm. Judge hopes it won't take a ton of time. The scheduled time gives them 4 hours. This is to continue this motions hearing about discovery violations. Eytan wishes the remaining witnesses to remain subpoenaed. Also Voter fraud has status conference hearing on 12/14/21. Other motions hearings have been set for 1/24/22, 1/25/22, 2/1/22, hearing on 4/7/22 & pretrial conference hearing on 4/8/22.
12/14/21 Update: The discovery & sanctions hearings took place today. Today’s hearings was presided over by District Judge Patrick Murphy. The last hearing for this case was on Nov. 9 when the defense made claims of “discovery violations” against the prosecution. The prosecution was different today without former lead prosecutor Jeff Lindsey. Lindsey left the jurisdiction, which took him off the case. Defense filed a motion to the court to dismiss the Judge Patrick Murphy on this case. Morphew's attorneys want Judge Murphy disqualified because of his lifetime relationship with lawyers representing Morphew's girlfriend, who was accused of trespassing at the Morphew's home earlier this fall. Shoshona Darke said she was merely picking up a FedEx package. Pertaining to Colorado law the court cannot continue with the hearing that was set today until the decision to disqualify the judge is made. The judge himself will rule on whether he will stay on the case or not. The judge says he has not had enough time to read the motion & consider the legal authority to decide today. The prosecution filed a response. The hearing for today is suspended. On 1/11/22 at 4pm the Judge will make a ruling on if he will be disqualified from the case or not. And status conference hearing re voter fraud at 4:30pm. 1/11/22 motion hearing has been change to status hearing @ 4:30pm Virtual.
12/14/21: Judge's response to motion (Motion to Disqualify Judge Patrick Murphy (D-55)) seeks to disqualify this judge from hearing this case. Because of the late filing, the Court has not had the ability to analyze, in any meaningful way, the Motion or the legal authority that supports the Motion. However, the Court disagrees with the defense position that the filing of the Motion alone requires disqualification. At this point, without further analysis & research, the Court is unable to determine if the situation as described in the affidavits requires disqualification. The Court declines to make substantial decisions such as this on the fly & without adequate time to analyze & research the argument & the legal authority that supports, or doesn't support, the argument. The Court will hear from the parties regarding any additional filings on this particular issue & will need to confirm with the prosecution that Shoshona Darke is a potential witness in this case. In an effort to be as transparent as possible, the Court will also put on the record the Court's relationship with attorney Sean McDermott as it is that relationship that forms the basis of the Motion.
12/29/21 Update: The prosecution has dismissed the trespassing charge against Darke the alleged girlfriend of Morphew. The victim did want to prosecute the charge but after closer review of the case law the people don’t believe there’s a reasonable likelihood of conviction.
12/30/21 Update: Order re: Defense Motion to Disqualify Chafee County District Court Judge Patrick Murphy (D-55)-The court hereby grants the motion & disqualifies itself from any further participation in this case or in the determination of the replacement judge. The District Administrator will contact Chief Justice Boatwright in order to determine a replacement judge.
link here: of interest/21CR78/4855_001.pdf

1/5/22 Update: Supreme Court Order appointing Judge Ramsey L. Lama (of the 11th District) to People v. Morphew by Chief Justice Brian D. Boatwright. Morphew will have the motions hearing in person with Judge Ramsey Lama on 1/24/22 at 8am. 1/7/22 Update: Murder case will not be heard on 1/11/22 only the voter fraud charge & will be virtual.
1/7/22 Update: The murder & voter fraud charges have been rescheduled for a status hearing on 1/12/22 @ 1pm.

Anybody know which of the area reporters are logging onto the WebEx?
Dang, I didn't realize it was a virtual appearance. I'm thinking that no reporters will be invited to attend. Per the expanded media coverage ruling:
Since it is a status hearing, I'm guessing no outside party will be invited to attend? I really hope that is incorrect...

I also don't see a virtual courtroom for Judge Lama.

Maybe a family member will let reporter LS know what happens, if she cannot report it firsthand.

Fremont County has Judge Lama-would it be done virtually through that court?

Since it's a status conference and virtual I'm assuming the judge could just handle from his office. If he is actually in a courtroom the process is open to the public by virtue of courtrooms being open to the public, but status conferences can simply be meetings of all involved and held in the judges office/chambers if in personand then not open to the public. I'm assuming this one is not going to be open to the public and is just a webx meeting with the all the parties.

@Seattle1 your post #951 on Thread #88 is an excellent argument that Class 1 Felonies like Murder in the First Degree should be considered "capital offenses" for purposes of Colorado Constitution Article II, Section 19 (a)'s exception to the right to bail. I am inclined to believe it will be the prevailing argument when the question is raised. Judge Murphy's handling of the eligibility issue certainly suggests he agrees with you on this.

But respectfully, you have not addressed the question that we started with, which is: "What if any bail standards apply after a judge determines that a capital murder suspect is eligible for bail under the terms of Section 19(a), because he cannot find 'the proof is evident or the presumption great' that the defendant committed the capital offense.

I proposed that once Judge Murphy decided BM was eligible for bail, the defendant was no longer subject to the Constitutional exemption to the right to bail. The judge was therefore constrained by the terms of the bail statute.

You seemed to believe that proposition was contrary to the law. I am still trying to understand why.

Thanks, as always, for engaging on this.
