Bryan Kohberger, the man accused of the horrific stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students in November, is facing the death sentence from the prosecution. About a month after Kohberger entered a not-guilty plea, a prosecutor in Latah County announced on Monday that he intended to seek the death penalty for him. When asked how he pled, Kohberger reportedly just stared ahead and remained silent, causing the court to enter the not-guilty plea on his behalf.
About The Case Of Bryan Kohberger
Kohberger, a 28-year-old former graduate student at the University of Washington, is accused of killing four students from Idaho: Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20.
The deaths were “especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel,” according to the prosecution, and Kohberger “exhibited utter disregard for human life.”
Idaho law stipulates that prosecutors had 60 days from the date of Kohberger’s May 22 indictment to file a request for the death penalty. As was customary in situations like this, News Nation reported earlier this month that prosecutors asked the victims’ families for their opinions before proceeding, with some of them publicly endorsing the idea. According to reports, Kohberger’s family was in favor of the death penalty, but the families of Goncalves and Mogen were against it.
There is no one in this case who is more deserving than the defendant. In a statement released on Monday, the family of Goncalves thanked the prosecution for seeking the death penalty and stated, “We continue to pray for all the families of the victims and appreciate all the support we have received.
No DNA from any of the victims was discovered in Kohberger’s home or vehicle, according to defense attorneys for Kohberger, who also assert that “Mr. Kohberger has no connection to the victims.”

I dont know about anyone else but If was accused of 4 murders that I didn’t do i would be screaming my innocence everytime I was in the courtroom. His complete lack of emotion to me shows the Sociopath in him. interested to see where this goes.RDR88084
If he had been in possession of any IDs besides his own that should be made obvious on the receipt for seized evidence, otherwise the risk would be having the evidence not be admissible in court due to broken chain of custody. As a juicy piece of evidence, someone else’s IDs would be further described, the receipt would be more like this:
X total IDs in a glove and a box (X-Y) IDs belonging to BCK (Y) IDs belonging to someone else state driver’s license of SOE expired library card of SOE
A “knife” written on the same list is done the same way—too vague to be admissible in court yet perfect to fuel a media shitshow in the meantime.HH_signallass
I think the trial will be delayed. Bryan asked for more time to give an alibi. His defense said they have too much to go through by the time line. Which I assumed they knew that at the Hearing. I was thinking they were hoping to make a plea deal but Bryan is not budging- purely speculating (myself)Audio31
I guess I am curious and hopeful about what more evidence they garnered from his social media and searches, etc. also whether he had even been on a tinder type date with anyone there. Patience is hard in this case. To me, the Murdaugh case was more cut and dried with the Snapchat video and all his debt.jossyak2021
I think he is guilty too but now asking for more time for an Alibi makes me think they did not find more DNA in car or at his residence- so, they just have to explain his phone tower pings etc and I guess his social media searches. If he was consistently clicking on one of their pictures, has his cell phone by their house on 12 occasions (stalking behavior), DNA at crime scene – they’ve got him!!!Audio31
