A grand jury has indicted Bryan Kohberger, the suspect in the death of four University of Idaho students late last year.
According to the Latah County District Court clerk, the multicount indictment includes first-degree murder.
According to various reports, he will appear for his arraignment in Moscow, Idaho, on Monday and enter a plea.
After a six-week manhunt, Kohberger, a 28-year-old Ph.D. student at Washington State University’s school of criminal justice and criminology, was arrested in December on first-degree murder and burglary charges. He has yet to enter a plea.
In January, Kohberger was caught at his parents’ house in Pennsylvania and extradited to Idaho.
Roommates Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21, as well as Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20, were stabbed to death in the middle of the night in the ladies’ off-campus residence.
“We are just grateful another step in the process has been completed and we believe this was the best option for the circumstances,” Steve Goncalves, the father of Kaylee, said in a statement to ABC News Wednesday.
Two other roommates were stabbed, and one of them saw a masked man in the residence. Both are not suspected in the stabbing.
According to authorities, the four students were presumably asleep when they were attacked, and several of them had defensive wounds.
According to court records, police think the killings occurred between 4 a.m. and 4:25 a.m. on Nov. 13.
When the remaining roommates discovered one of the deaths, they called 911 from one of their phones on Nov. 13. The caller asked for assistance for an unconscious person who was not answering.
Officers arrived on the site and discovered four victims.
According to the records, DNA from the suspect was detected on a knife sheath placed on a victim’s bed. According to the complaint, on December 27, police seized garbage from Kohberger’s parents’ residence in Pennsylvania, and a test revealed the DNA from the trash was the father of the person who left DNA on the knife sheath.
