COLLIN COUNTY, Texas --  The saying, "Ask and you shall receive" is not the case for Enrique Arochi. A Collin County judge refused a motion to reduce his $1 million bond Thursday following a day of damning testimony.

"It's sickening. It's the hardest thing I've had to do in my entire life," Christina Morris' mother, Jonni McElroy said. "He has caused the most horrendous pain I've been through in my entire life. I mean enough is enough, seriously."

Arochi is charged with kidnapping Morris from the Shops at Legacy in Plano over Labor Day weekend. He's the last person seen with her after a night of partying with friends.

Evidence against Arochi piled up as the prosecutor put Plano detectives on the stand. When one detective was asked if he believed Arochi kidnapped Christina Morris, he replied, "Absolutely."

Arochi's interrogation videos were also played in court. In them, he admits he smoked pot and had 10 shots of alcohol that day, telling detectives, "I was really trashed."

Cops say he told conflicting stories about how he got bruises and scratches on his hands and arms and say he denied walking Morris to the garage until he was shown the surveillance video.

Detectives testified Arochi stopped cooperating after they got security cam video that shows him cleaning the trunk of his car just hours after he was seen with Morris.

Weeks later, Plano PD got the results of DNA tests taken from Arochi's Chevy Camaro. The prosecutor says Morris' DNA was found in the trunk.

From the beginning, he told cops Morris never got in his car. He told NewsFix the same thing during an interview back in October before his arrest.

"I want answers," McElroy said. "I don't want answers tomorrow. I dont want answers the next day. I want my daughter home. I've had enough!"
