The man charged with kidnapping in the disappearance of Christina Morris had his request for a bond reduction denied during a probable cause hearing Thursday.

“Justice is finally being served,” said Jonni McElroy, Morris’ mother. “Hallelujah.”

McKINNEY, TX– The man last seen with 23-year-old Christina Morris is in court Thursday seeking to lower his $1 million bond.

Plano police arrested Enrique Arochi, 24, in December and charged him with aggravated kidnapping related to the disappearance of Morris, 22. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since August 30, 2014.

A Plano reporter has been live tweeting from the courthouse. 

Detectives have found traces of Morris’s blood, not only on the trunk of Arochi’s car, but also on the mat inside the trunk.

But work didn’t seem to be a huge priority for the suspect.

When authorities asked Arochi for his phone, he denied access.

The possibility of drugs in the case is leading to more loose ends in the story, which doesn’t come as a surprise as Morris’s boyfriend, Hunter Foster was arrested in December for involvement in a drug sting.

Arochi still refuses involvement in Morris’s disappearance, and there are still many questions left unanswered, but her family refuses to give up hope.

This is a developing story.
