A 55-year-old Carbon County man charged with murder after his brother's decomposing body was found in a bedroom sealed with duct tape and plastic last month appeared in 7th District Court on Wednesday.
Kurt Alan Morris waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and is now scheduled to enter his plea to the charge of murder, a first-degree felony, on Nov. 5. The Carbon County Attorney's Office believes Jack Roger Morris was shot in the head on Aug. 18. His body wasn't discovered until Sept. 4 after police were called to the brothers' home when neighbors spotted a hose running from the exhaust pipe of a truck into Morris' mobile home.
Deputies discovered Kurt Morris on the floor, and upon searching the home, found his brother's body behind a bedroom door that had been sealed with plastic and duct tape.
