RENO, NV - A friend of Timothy Wayne Morgan said he helped Morgan move a freezer that smelled of decay to a forest. James Wyrick testified in Washoe District Court Tuesday that Morgan buried what was inside the freezer.
Morgan is accused of murdering his sister's husband, Eric Preimesberger, by hitting him with a baseball bat two years ago. Wyrick said Preimesberger, who is a spiritual advisor, told him the freezer contained items that were connected to bad 'entities.' Wyrick said he saw dirt and a trash bag inside the freezer. He also said Morgan burned the freezer, after burying what was inside.
Wyrick's testimony comes after Eric Preimesberger's wife, Kristi, said she helped cover up the murder. Taking the stand a second a second day, she said she repeatedly lied to authorities. She said she did not immediately tell them she actually saw Morgan murder Eric with a baseball bat. She was summoned to court on a material witness warrant.
Testimony continues Wednesday.
