MCKINNEY -- Grey skies loomed over the Collin County Courthouse Monday morning
as the jury prepped to hear testimony and more evidence to determine  the fate of Enrique Arochi. He's the man convicted of kidnapping of Christina Morris.

After the verdict last Wednesday, the judge released the jury to go home and relax before the sentencing phase, where Arochi could get up to life in prison. Fast forward to Monday, when  proceedings hit yet another snag in an already emotional and tiring case.

The judge had to call the court into recess due to feeling, “as sick as a dog,” with a sinus and ear infection.

This isn’t the first illness to hit someone in this case. During jury deliberations last week, one of the jurors went home sick and an alternate had to be sent in. That could be the case again since the judge said if he's not feeling better by tomorrow, another judge could be pinch hitting in his absence. The trial will resume Tuesday morning at 9.
