Jury selection continued today for the trial of Enrique Arochi, who has pled not guilty to the aggravated kidnapping of Christina Morris, a UTD alumna. Defense attorney Keith Gore is representing Arochi, with Collin County attorney Zeke Fortenberry prosecuting during the trial. Mark Rusch is the judge presiding over the case.
Yesterday closed with the opening arguments of both sides. The defense stressed that the jury must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that what was written in Arochi’s indictment did indeed occur. Before the jury was dismissed for the day, they heard brief testimony from the prosecution’s witnesses.
