Barry Morphew refused to take a polygraph test in the days after his wife was reported missing on Mother's Day in 2020, the affidavit said.
Investigators allege that a Colorado man charged with killing his missing wife decided to "hunt and control" her like an animal after she insisted on leaving him and later changed his statements as evidence in the case developed, according to a court document released Monday.

A judge allowed the release of the arrest affidavit laying out investigators' case against Barry Morphew after ruling last week that there was enough evidence for him to stand trial for murder in the presumed death of Suzanne Morphew. Barry Morphew has pleaded not guilty and was released from jail Monday after posting a $500,000 cash bond. TV footage captured by CBS Denver showed him walking out of jail with his two daughters with Suzanne Morphew.
