A person has been taken into custody in Monroe County in connection with the homicide investigation of four University of Idaho students in November.
Law enforcement officials state they arrested Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, of Albrightsville, in connection to the November killings of four people in Moscow, Idaho.
On Thursday Pennsylvania State Police took Kohberger into custody in Chestnuthill Township around 1:45 a.m. based on an active arrest warrant for first-degree murder issued by the Moscow Police.
Kohberger is being held for extradition in a criminal homicide investigation.
The four victims, who were believed to be sleeping at the time of the killings, were stabbed to death on November 13.
They were identified as Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.
