COLLIN COUNTY -- The wheels of justice are at work in Collin County. After nearly a day and a half of picking a jury, the trial has begun in the aggravated  kidnapping case of Christina Morris.

Seven men and seven women - two of whom are alternates - make up the jury who will decide if Enrique Arochi, the man suspected of kidnapping Morris, is innocent or guilty.

A difficult task given the amount of media attention this case has gotten in the two years since Morris went missing.

Friends and family of Morris have been inside the courtroom since jury selection began, but many are witnesses - including Morris' mom, Jonni McElroy - and therefore won't be able to watch the trial unfold.

The prosecution says they will rely on cell phone pings, DNA, and surveillance video as key evidence.

As for Arochi, he maintains he knows nothing about the disappearance of Morris and has disputed the claim that he was the last one seen with the then 23-year-oldwoman.

But as we found out today, ultimately, it's up to a jury of his peers to figure out what's true... and what's not.
