Bryan Kohberger returns to court for Idaho murder trial with’surprise witness’: Live updates

Bryan Kohberger appeared in court today for a hearing, during which his defense team interrogated a Moscow Police Department detective regarding the handling of phone records. This questioning is part of their motion to compel the prosecution to provide additional evidence in the case.

The authorities are looking for evidence, which includes dashcam footage linked to the search warrant executed at Mr. Kohberger’s residence in Pennsylvania, as well as the results of lab testing.

A criminology PhD student, aged 29, is currently awaiting trial for the murders of University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin. The tragic incident occurred on November 13, 2022, at their off-campus house in Moscow, Idaho.

The police linked the 29-year-old suspect to the murders in Moscow based on several pieces of evidence. This includes DNA evidence, cellphone data, an eyewitness account, and the fact that he owns a white Hyundai Elantra.

The defense attorneys have previously attempted to make the argument that the DNA could have been intentionally placed at the scene, raising doubts about its validity. Additionally, they have asserted that the prosecution has not provided all of the evidence necessary for a thorough review by the defense team.

In a recent development, his legal team took steps to have the murder charges against him dropped. They filed a motion, highlighting various reasons including a biased grand jury, inadmissible evidence, and prosecutorial misconduct. However, their request was denied by Judge John Judge.

The trial has yet to be scheduled.
