Judge delays Christina Morris kidnapping trial three months

A judge has agreed to delay the trial for the man accused of kidnapping Christina Morris.

Arochi is accused of kidnapping Morris from the Shops at Legacy as the two left a friend’s apartment in Plano in August 2014. He was the last person seen with her on surveillance video that night, but has repeatedly denied knowing what happened to her.

Arochi’s kidnapping trial was scheduled for June, but the judge on Thursday pushed it back three months so the defense can review more evidence in the case.

Police said Morris’ DNA, likely from her blood, was found in the trunk of Arochi’s car.

The trial was previously delayed in October so that prosecutors could test hair fibers that were found in a shop vacuum cleaner at a store where he worked as a manager.

Arochi is also accused of sexually assaulting a child in an unrelated case.
