Arochi’s trial was supposed to start June 6 in McKinney. But Thursday, the judge pushed it back to Sept. 12 after a defense motion. North Texas defense attorney Nicole Knox said another motion filed, is for a change of venue.

“The defense lawyers believe the only way they are going to get a fair trial, is to minimize any kind of risk of pre-trail publicity and the effect that might have on potential jurors,” said Knox.

The defense also wants to sequester jurors, and have certain DNA evidence thrown out. Knox said that isn’t unusual.

“Filing motions to challenge material evidence is something that every defense attorney should do,” she said.

Arochi was the person last seen with Morris in surveillance video of the two leaving the parking garage at the Shops of Legacy in the early hours of August 30, 2014. He was charged with Aggravated Kidnapping after DNA was found by investigators in the trunk of his car.
