A Doney Park Man Heads To Trial In October On Charges Connected To The 2019 Stabbing Death Of His Wife

A man who is accused of fatally stabbing his wife over 30 times in Doney Park in 2019, will go to trial in October. The trial was slated to start in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic set it back. Back in March of 2019, now 40-year-old Timothy Duran and his wife, 35-year-old Crystal Morgan, were in their home in the Gemini Drive area, when Duran allegedly started stabbing her multiple times with a screwdriver. He left the area before authorities arrived and was later taken into custody by Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies on Interstate-17 near the McGuireville Exit near Rimrock. Emergency personnel treated Morgan at the scene, but she was pronounced dead. Morgan had filed for divorce from Duran just three days before the attack. Police say that every time Morgan had threaten divorce, Duran would threaten to kill her. Duran is facing charges of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and two counts of threatening or intimidating. Duran pleaded not guilty to the charges. He remains in custody at the Coconino County Jail on two-million dollars bond.
