McKINNEY, Texas (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Dallas-area man to life in prison for the 2014 abduction of a woman who remains missing.
Enrique Arochi was sentenced Friday in McKinney.
A Collin County jury on Sept. 21 convicted Arochi of aggravated kidnapping in the disappearance of Christina Morris. Arochi opted to have a judge, not the jury, decide his punishment.
Prosecutors say Arochi was the last person seen with Morris in August 2014. Surveillance video showed them walking into a Plano parking garage after a night of drinking with mutual friends.
Her parents later reported Morris was missing. Investigators say DNA from Morris was found in Arochi’s vehicle amid the search for her. Morris was originally from Fort Worth.
