University of Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger has been indicted by a grand jury.
Mr Kohberger is accused of killing students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chaping at the victims’ off-campus residence on 13 November. He was arrested at his family home in Pennsylvania on December 30 after investigators gathered a lot of evidence that allegedly linked him to the crime.
A preliminary hearing scheduled for 26 January has now been canceled following an indictment on four counts of murder and robbery against Mr Kohberger on Wednesday, KREM2 reports. According to Idaho law, the court must prove that there is sufficient evidence to move to a trial through either a preliminary hearing or a grand jury indictment.
The former Washington State University PhD student is expected to appear in Latah County District Court on Monday to enter a plea.
