As FrontPageDetectives previously reported, 28-year-old Kohberger was studying for a Ph.D. in criminology at Washington State University when police believe he broke into a home in Moscow, Idaho, and stabbed four students to death: Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.


Following a six-week investigation, Kohberger was located across the country and arrested at his family’s home in Pennsylvania on charges of first-degree murder and burglary.

He was extradited from Pennsylvania to Idaho at the beginning of this year.

“We are just grateful another step in the process has been completed and we believe this was the best option for the circumstances,” Kaylee Goncalves father, Steve Goncalves, noted in a statement to ABC News about the indictment.
