Daughter of Oregon 'Most Wanted' fugitive caught in Pr. William returns home

A 4-year-old girl whose parents are in custody for what police say is their involvement in a double homicide in Oregon has been returned to Idaho by her grandparents.

Bill and Rita Pope say they traveled to Virginia to get custody of Kalea Morris and brought her back to Blackfoot last week.

Kalea's father, Gabriel Morris, was arrested in Dumfries on March 1 after someone in the house in which he was staying searched for his name on the internet. For more on that story, read Josh White's post on The Crime Scene.

The girl’s father, Gabriel Morris, is charged with aggravated murder in the Feb. 8 shooting deaths of his mother, 62-year-old Robin Anstey, and 48-year-old Robert Kennelly Jr., in Bandon, Ore.

Jessica Morris, the girl’s mother, is charged with hindering prosecution.

The two were arrested in Virginia on Feb. 22. Kalea Morris was placed in foster care until the Popes were able to take custody.
