Jose Morales, Ansonia murder suspect, headed for fall trial, attorney says

MILFORD – The trial of a man accused of killing the mother of his still missing infant in Ansonia more than three years ago is set to go ahead “on schedule” this fall, his lawyer told the court on Tuesday.

Jose Morales, 46, appeared before Judge Peter Brown in Superior Court in Milford on Tuesday, where his attorney Edward Gavin said he was still reviewing evidence in the case handed over by prosecutors.

The latest round of detections consisted of 600 police bodycam videos, Gavin said.

“Lord Judge, a video can be a minute or five hours long,” he said. “I went through about a third of that, so I’ve got about 400 left.”

He asked to meet with Judge and Assistant District Attorney Howard Stein next month before Morales is scheduled to return to court on April 4.

“If we could meet with Your Honor…I would like to update you on where we are and I think that would be very fruitful,” Gavin said.
