Timothy Morgan Found Guilty Of Murder


After listening to closing arguments this morning, it only took jurors a short time to come back with a finding of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon in the April 2010 killing of Eric Preimesberger.

Prosecutors said because Morgan and his sister were not in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm, Morgan’s ever-changing story claiming he acted in self-defense did not fit.

Michael Becker, Morgan’s attorney, said Morgan was a peaceful, spiritual man who witnessed Eric and Kristi in an argument.  Morgan wasn’t used to violence in the home when he grabbed a baseball bat and bashed in Eric’s skull.  Eric was then dragged into the laundry room where he died of his wounds.

Kristi, his wife and Morgan’s sister, and Morgan cleaned up the blood and moved the body multiple times prior to disposing it.  Both Kristi and Morgan repeatedly lied to police about Eric’s disappearance.

Kristi was not charged in the murder or coverup due to an insane “sibling law” in Nevada which only allows for only one sibling to be charged!

How insane is that????  If there’s a law that needs to be immediately changed, this is it!

It must be a shallow victory for Eric’s family because many believe Kristi played a major role in Eric’s demise and she was allowed to walk free.  Many also question why Morgan offered himself up as the ‘sacrificial lamb’ for the benefit of his sister to walk away scot-free!

Just sad, all the way around!

    Thanks for the report, Donchais. So, Morgan will be sentenced and Kristi will go free. That is weird. I wonder how that sibling law came about!

    One of the oddest laws that I have ever heard of –

    All I can think of is somebody, years ago, needed to get somebody off a charge and this old law has been quietly lying about…and now…well you know how I feel!
