MOSCOW, IDAHO: University of Idaho quadruple murder suspect Bryan Kohberger is reportedly in the company of 22 criminals, with some of the inmates facing serious charges themselves. This was after Kohberger, 28, was booked at an Idaho jail after being flown from Pennsylvania to a nearby airport and later escorted by a cop caravan to Moscow.
Kohberger, the prime suspect in the University of Idaho killings was seen in a new mugshot as he was set to be hit with murder charges in court on Thursday, December 5. About two dozen inmates are locked up at the Latah County Jail in Moscow, and while some are doing time for minor crimes like petty theft and driving without privileges, others are facing serious charges.
As reported by TMZ, one of Kohberger's fellow inmates is Micah James DeMoss, who is facing 8 counts of video voyeurism, 2 counts of child sexual exploitation material, and a charge of rape, with the alleged victim being 16 or 17 and the alleged perpetrator is 3 years older. Meanwhile, inmate Brandi Lea Holland has been charged with aggravated assault, possession of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor drug paraphernalia.
Jesse Allan Irby has been locked up for domestic violence with traumatic injury, DUI, and unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Another inmate Jesse Eugene Burnett is reportedly in for lewd conduct with a child under 16 and 4 counts of promoting, publishing, or producing child sexually exploitative material.
Latah County Sheriff Richard Skiles said Kohberger will soon get a cell to himself and will be treated like the rest of his inmates. He will also be allowed to talk to his family on the phone. The former criminology doctoral student was seen landing in Washington at the Pullman-Moscow Airport on Wednesday evening, December 4. He was escorted by guards as he walked across the runway shackled in a bright red jumpsuit.
Kohberger arrived at the county jail escorted by a police motorcade about 15 minutes later. According to the New York Post, during the journey to Washington, authorities reportedly evacuated an entire Illinois airport so the suspect could walk inside and relieve himself. At least three armed guards took Kohberger inside while a small private plane was getting refueled.
Kohberger will be asked on Thursday to plead guilty or not guilty to the stabbing deaths of Idaho students Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20. According to The Sun, an affidavit of probable cause is also expected to become public after the suspect is arraigned before a judge. The document will reveal key details in the horrific murder case that has shaken communities across the country.

MEAWW previously reported how Kohberger was a PhD student at Washington State University Pullman, which is less than 10 miles away from the University of Idaho. He was arrested at his parents' home in eastern Pennsylvania after he drove across the country from WSU with his father, nearly seven weeks after the slayings.
