The murder case of Timothy Duran has now gone to the jury. After the state rested last Thursday, the defense just needed one day to wrap-up the case and deliver closing arguments. 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. 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 has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Duran could face life in prison if he’s found guilty.
