The students were found stabbed to death in their beds in a rental home near the campus on 13 November.

Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Kaylee Goncalves, and Madison Mogen were all found dead in their home in the small university city of Moscow, in northern Idaho.

In the weeks after their deaths, family members of the victims have voiced frustration with the investigation’s progress.

Kohberger, 28, is a Ph.D. student at the department of criminal justice and criminology, according to the WSU website. 

Arrest paperwork filed in Monroe County Court shows that he was being held for extradition to Idaho, where he faces a first-degree murder charge. 

A press conference is scheduled by police in Moscow, Idaho, at 4 p.m. ET to discuss developments in the case.
