    Trial set for man accused of kidnapping Christina Morris from Plano's Shops at Legacy

    Valerie Wigglesworth

    [​IMG]

    After two years, hundreds of tips and an arrest, family and friends still don't know what happened to Christina Morris.

    The 23-year-old woman hasn't been seen since she walked with an acquaintance into a Plano parking garage. The time stamp on the Shops at Legacy surveillance video was 3:55 a.m. Aug. 30, 2014.

    Despite intense, high-profile pleas and searches by authorities and those close to Morris, her whereabouts remain unknown.

    On Sept. 6, all eyes will shift to a Collin County courtroom where the man accused in her disappearance is set to go on trial. Enrique Arochi, 26, is the acquaintance from that surveillance video. He has said he doesn't know what happened to Morris.

    Plano police charged him with aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony that carries a penalty of up to life in prison. Arochi has pleaded not guilty.

    The trial has been a long time coming. I hope we get some answers as to what happened that night. I drive the Alma/121 intersection every day and even if I'm thinking of something else at the time, Christina always pops into my head as soon as I am just north of that intersection.
    I hope that jury selection goes smoothly and they can get started quickly.

    Thinking of Christina, her family and friends and everyone who has been touched by this case.

    Let justice be done and questions be answered.

    Reading through the news this morning, I am shocked that EA has been in jail since December 2014. In my mind, I knew it, but wow - he's been sitting and rotting for over a year and a half.

    A) How has that much time passed already - it seems like this just happened?
    B) I hope he is mentally broken -- we need to #findchristina and I think he's our only ticket at this point.

    Here's to a quick trial and a guilty verdict.
