Grand Jury Indicts Bryan Kohberger for University of Idaho Quadruple Murders

On Wednesday, a grand jury indicted Bryan Kohberger for last year’s slayings of four University of Idaho students.

The Idaho Statesman reported that Kohberger, 28, will be arraigned on Monday at Latah County District Court. The indictment means that there is no need for next month’s preliminary hearing in which prosecutors would prove the charges against Kohberger have merit.

Kohberger, a Ph.D. criminal justice student at Washington State University, was arrested in December in Pennsylvania for murdering Maddie Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Ethan Chapin, and Xana Kernodle at the women’s off-campus home. He is believed to have turned off his phone during the November 13 murders. However, police claim he visited the area 12 times before the slayings.

Kohberger was arrested after a cross-country trip with his father from Idaho to Pennsylvania. During their trip, Indiana police pulled over the pair twice. Sources claimed the FBI requested the traffic stops to view possible injuries on Kohberger’s hands.

Kohberger is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and burglary. He remains jailed without bail.
