Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger was seen for the first time since his arrest as he was lead into a Pennsylvania courthouse for his extradition hearing.

Kohberger, 28, is suspected of murdering four University of Idaho students in November.

Kohberger will appear before a judge in Monroe County, where he is expected to waive his right to extradition. His hearing is scheduled for 3.30pm.

Monroe County Public Defender Jason LaBar said his client was ‘eager’ to return to Idaho.

‘Mr Kohberger has been accused of very serious crimes, but the American justice system cloaks him in a veil of innocence,’ LaBar stated. ‘He should be presumed innocent until proven otherwise — not tried in the court of public opinion.’

Once Kohberger has been seen before an Idaho court, investigators will be able to release more information about the suspect.

The murders of Ethan Chapin, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and Madison Mogen confounded investigators for over a month after they were discovered on November 13.

The four students were found dead with their throats slashed inside an off-campus apartment.

Authorities eventually identified Kohberger as their suspect. He is a graduate student in a Washington State University PhD program studying criminology.

Washington State is located in Pullman, just 13 miles west of the University of Idaho’s campus in the small town of Moscow.
