Brian Kohberger appears in the Idaho courthouse for the first time

Suspected killer Brian Kohberger is scheduled to appear in court today charged with killing four University of Idaho students in a brutal knife attack on November 13.

A hearing on the case of the 28-year-old PhD student in criminology is scheduled for Thursday at 8:00 a.m. PT in the Latah District Court in Moscow.

His court appearance coincides with the start of the spring semester at the University of Idaho, with many students returning to campus for the first time since the murders of Kylie Goncalves, Madison Maugen, Zanna Kernodel and Ethan Chapin.

Several students expressed relief that the suspect is now behind bars, with second student Ryder Pasley telling KXLY he is “breathing [a] I breathed a sigh of relief and I’m sure my mother did too” when news broke that Mr. Kohberger had been arrested.

The accused killer is not expected to file a plea in Wednesday’s hearing, but he reportedly intends to fight the allegations.

During his delivery from Pennsylvania to Moscow, he reportedly had a brief conversation about the case with the officers.

“It’s really sad what happened to them,” he said, but didn’t say anything else. He’s smarter than that, a law enforcement source told People.

Will Brian Kohberger get the death penalty?

Accused murderer Brian Kohberger could face the death penalty for the killings of Kylie Goncalves, Madison Maugin, Zanna Kernodel and Ethan Chapin.

Under Idaho law, he faces the death penalty or life in prison for each count of murder.

Goncalves’ parents have previously said they support the death penalty for him, saying a life sentence is not enough for his alleged crimes.

THE VOICES: Online detectives hijacked the Idaho murder case. Should we blame them?

Rachel Sharp writes that the list of conspiracies surrounding the Idaho murders is endless The Independent.

“But the emerging details appear to be worse than online detectives’ fantasies: a highly intelligent, highly practical suspect with a keen interest in the criminal mind allegedly entered the house in the dead of night, dressed in black and wearing a mask, and allegedly stabbed the four victims multiple times.”

“As long as Brian Kohberger is in custody, the internet rumor shows no signs of ending.”

Brian Kohberger will appear in court today

Suspected killer Brian Kohberger is scheduled to appear in court today charged with killing four University of Idaho students in a brutal knife attack on November 13.

A hearing for the 28-year-old doctoral student in criminology is scheduled for Thursday at 8 a.m. PST at the Latah District Court in Moscow.

The accused killer is not expected to file a plea in Wednesday’s hearing, but he reportedly intends to fight the allegations.

The murder suspect’s preliminary hearing was originally scheduled for 10:00 a.m. PST, but was postponed late last week.

A court order announcing the change revealed a time discrepancy with the original time.

“Due to scheduling conflicts, the parties have stipulated the change of said hearing time. Therefore, with good reason, it is hereby requested that the preliminary hearing be held on January 12, 2023 at 8:00 am PST in Courtroom 1 of the Latah District Court.”

Mr. Kohberger last appeared in a Pennsylvania court on January 3 to waive his extradition hearing to the state of Idaho — four days after he was arrested on December 30 for the murders of Kylie Goncalves, Madison Maugin, Zana Kernodel and Ethan Chapin.

Alan Dershowitz shares his thoughts on a potential Bryan Kohberger defense

“The document shrinks Kohberger, so the defense’s first step should be to start developing their own evidence,” Dershowitz said on the podcast. “You always assume your customer is guilty, and then go back from there.”

He added, “I would surprise people if I said that a good criminal defense lawyer always begins with the presumption of guilt, not the presumption of innocence.”

“If you assume your client is innocent, you will make mistakes. You will authorize the search. You will allow him to talk to the police. Then you always have to keep in mind the possibility of a guilty plea bargain.”

“It is difficult in a case like this where there was so much death and brutality that the lawyers, whoever they were, stopped their work.”

Dershowitz also said that Kohberger’s attorneys are responsible for explaining the physical evidence linking their client to the murders, in a way that “allows the possibility of innocence or at least reasonable suspicion.”

New footage shows Brian Kohberger did not attend the vigil

Armchair detectives – who had been investigating alleged leads in the case for weeks – grabbed onto a specific clip showing the back of a tall, black-haired man and made the absolutely outlandish claim that it might be acting from Mr. Kohberger.

The unfounded speculation has now been put to rest by new Inside Edition screenshots, which appear to show the face of the same man online commenters have identified as Mr. Kohberger from behind. It is clear from the POS video that the man is not Mr. Kohberger.

The vigil rumor was the latest wild theory to circulate on the Internet, but it was quickly debunked.
