The 28-year-old criminology graduate student is accused of killing friends Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, at their off-campus residence in Moscow, Idaho, on the morning of 2017 , having killed November 13, 2022.

Kohberger was a graduate student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington – a 15-minute drive from the rental house where the four students were killed.

He has been held in the Latah County Jail since being arrested at his parents’ home in Monroe County. Pennsylvaniaon December 30, 2022, more than a month after the horrific killings shook the small university town of Moscow.

Investigators said Kohberger had visited the King Road home 12 times before the killing, since June 2022.

According to court documents, Kohberger’s visits typically took place in the late evening or early morning hours.

According to investigators, in the early morning hours of November 13, 2022, Kohberger sneaked into the three-story house undetected through a sliding glass door.

The 28-year-old is then accused of brutally stabbing Madison and Kaylee in Madison’s second floor bedroom, and subsequently killing Xana and Ethan in their third floor room.

The case remained unsolved for over a month until investigators announced Kohberger’s arrest.

Investigators linked the 28-year-old suspect to the crime scene after comparing his DNA on an abandoned knife sheath lying next to victims Madison and Kaylee.

Moscow police officer Brett Payne said he noticed the two best friends, 21, had “visible stab wounds”.

He added that when he later surveyed the room they were in from the doorway, he “noticed what appeared to be a tan leather knife sheath lying on the bed to the side of Mogen’s right.”

The scabbard was later edited to bear “Ka-Bar,” “USMC,” and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe,” court documents revealed.

On December 27, 2022, after targeting the 28-year-old as a suspect, police recovered the trash from the Kohberger family home in Monroe County.
