Willis Trial Witness Jailed Until Trial

A no-show witness in the Eric Willis murder trial is behind bars. And the Lubbock County District Attorney's office wants to see to it that she stays put, until the trial.

Lubbock police handcuffed Jessica Paz as she stepped off a bus at the bus station downtown. Paz did not show up for Willis's trial on Monday, forcing a rescheduling of the trial to July 7th. She is now being held on a $500,000 bond.

Paz is the witness who put Willis at the scene of the August 16th shooting death of 15-year-old Ishmael Hernandez. Willis is charged with the murder.
