The suspect in the deadly stabbings of four University of Idaho students, Bryan Christopher Kohberger was arrested and booked into jail in Idaho on Wednesday night.
He was escorted by police from the Pennsylvania State Police plane to a waiting automobile that was a member of the caravan of five vehicles that made the quick drive across the Idaho border after landing in Pullman, Washington, less than 10 miles from Moscow, Idaho.
According to jail records, Kohberger, 28, was checked into the Latah County Jail on Wednesday night.
He left a county jail in Pennsylvania and was turned over to state police earlier in the day, according to officials, following which he traveled across the country.
In a Stroudsburg courtroom on Tuesday, Kohberger renounced extradition, clearing the route for his journey to Latah County, Idaho.
Kohberger is accused of breaking into the Moscow, Idaho, residence with the intention of committing a crime, and will be charged with four charges of first-degree murder and burglary there, according to prosecuting attorney Bill Thompson.
He “When he arrives, Jail staff will assess him, just like they do for every other prisoner who enters our facilities. The classification of Mr. Kohberger’s accommodation will be determined by the assessment made by the jail personnel, “Sheriff of Latah County Richard Skiles made a statement.
In northeastern Pennsylvania’s Albrightsville, almost 2,500 miles from Moscow, where the students were killed on November 13, Kohberger was taken into custody on Friday.
He is charged with the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho, Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington.
At Washington State University, which is nine miles from Moscow, in the criminal justice and criminology department, the suspect was a doctorate student.
Without going into any detail, a university spokesman stated on Tuesday that Kohberger is “no longer enrolled as a student” there.
