Suspect In University Of Idaho Students' Killings Arrested

Bryan Kohberger—the man accused of killing four University of Idaho college students—arrived back in Idaho Wednesday after waiving extradition from Pennsylvania earlier this week.

Kohberger, 28, was booked into the Latah County Jail in Moscow, Idaho at 6:44 p.m. Wednesday, according to jail records reviewed by Oxygen.com.

The 28-year-old criminal justice student, who is seen in a new mugshot dressed in all orange, is facing four counts of murder and one count of burglary in connection with the Nov. 13 deaths of Madison Mogen, 21; Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Ethan Chapin, 20; and Xana Kernodle, 20.

Kohberger made the trek back to Idaho in a single engine plane owned by the Pennsylvania State Police, which left the Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport Wednesday morning around 7 a.m. PT, Fox News reports.

The plane reportedly made two stops, including one at the Willard Airport in Champaign, Illinois around 11 a.m. PT. As the plane refueled, TMZ reported the airport was completely evacuated of passengers and staff members so that Kohberger could make a restroom stop before the 28-year-old was led back to the plane in shackles.

The plane arrived in Pullman, Washington, where Kohberger had been living while pursuing his doctoral degree in criminal justice at Washington State University before his arrest, around 6:22 p.m. PT before he was transported across the state line into Idaho and booked into the county jail.

Kohberger was arrested Friday at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania, where he had gone to spend the holidays. He agreed to waive extradition to Idaho in court on Tuesday.

Kohberger has been accused of breaking into an off-campus rental home in Moscow, Idaho in the early morning hours of Nov. 13 and killing four of the occupants inside the home.

Police have said they believe the four victims were likely stabbed multiple times in their sleep. Some of the victims had signs of defensive wounds, although authorities have not identified which victims.

Two other women, who had lived on the home’s ground floor, were not targeted in the attack and survived. 

Investigators have not released a motive in the killings or revealed whether they believe Kohberger had any connection to the victims.

An Idaho judge signed a non-dissemination order on Tuesday obtained by Oxygen.com that prevents authorities from discussing the case publicly.

Before the order was put into place, two law enforcement sources told CNN that investigators linked Kohberger to the shocking crime after finding his DNA at the crime scene. He was also allegedly connected to a white Hyundai Elantra spotted near the crime scene at the time of the murders.

According to Moscow Police, the probable cause affidavit has been sealed until Kohberger appears in court in Idaho on the charges against him.

Kohberger recently completed his first semester as a teaching assistant and PhD student in Washington State University’s criminal justice program.

Those who interacted with him at WSU, which is located just across the state line from Moscow, Idaho, have said that they were shocked by the allegations against him.

“It was just totally jarring, totally shocking to realize that this person that had been grading my papers was allegedly this horrible murderer,” student Hayden Stinchfield told KXLY.
