Judge Enters Not Guilty Pleas on Behalf of Idaho Quadruple Murders Suspect Bryan Kohberger
Idaho quadruple murders suspect Bryan Kohberger on Monday arrived in court for his arraignment.
According to reports, Kohberger remained silent during his arraignment when the judge asked him to enter a plea to the charges.
The judge ended up entering not guilty pleas on behalf of Kohberger, CBS reported.
Kohberger was indicted by a secret grand jury last week and charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of burglary in the slayings of four University of Idaho students.
Bryan Kohberger, 28, is accused of fatally stabbing 20-year-old Ethan Chapin of Conway, Washington; 21-year-old Madison Mogen of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; 20-year-old Xana Kernodle of Avondale, Arizona; and 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves of Rathdrum, Idaho on November 13.

According to the court documents, Kohberger’s DNA was found on a tan leather knife sheath left behind on Maddie Mogen’s bed on the 3rd floor at the King Road Residence.
“The sheath was later processed and had ‘Ka-Bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia stamped on the outside of it,” Idaho police officer Brett Payne wrote in the 19-page affidavit. “The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”
Pennsylvania unsealed search warrants that revealed a number of items seized by law enforcement from Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ home during a December 30 raid.
Authorities seized black gloves, a Glock, a knife (possibly the murder weapon?), black face masks, ‘green leafy substance’ in a plastic bag and other items.
Police also seized parts of Bryan Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra.
It could take 6 months or longer for this murder case to go to trial.
Prosecutors have not disclosed whether they will pursue the death penalty.
