While the trial has a scheduled date and is expected to last three months, the location for the trial still remains undetermined.

Kohberger’s attorneys and prosecutors did not object to the proposed trial date.

However, lead defense attorney Anne Taylor stated they have yet to present evidence showing why the trial should take place outside of Latah County.

In November 2022, Kohberger, 29, was studying for a Ph.D. in criminology at Washington State University when police believe he broke into a home in Moscow, Idaho, and allegedly fatally stabbed four students — Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.
