MOSCOW, IDAHO: Social media users have been discussing how Bryan Kohberger's life in prison if found guilty of the Idaho murders, would be different from his current time in jail. Jail is used to describe a place for those awaiting trial or held for crimes that are minor. Prison, on the other hand, is a place for perpetrators convicted of serious crimes.

Kohberger, 28, has been accused of fatally stabbing Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in their off-campus three-story rented home on November 13, 2022. He was arrested in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, on December 30.

"Yeah, he's in the county jail, after he's sentenced, assuming he's guilty (eye roll) he'll go to a state prison, and most likely be on death row. And death row is. 23 and 1, so he's alone in a cell 23 hours a day with 1 hour of reck time a day. Hell eat all his meals alone only have a very tiny cell. Where as now, he's most likely got a celly he eats with gen pop. He might be in PC but they put all the PCs together so.....his life will be very very very miserable. He could get a life sentence and they could ship him to some max prison in West Virginia or somthing too. But thats still a heavy lock down 23/1....28 years old SMH ruined his whole life, his family's and took 4 innocent lives for what? An adrenaline rush?" one user wrote on Reddit. Another user wrote, "This! I had a friend go to a small county jail. I went to visit him once and it was like he wasn’t even in jail. The guards passed notes between us, they treated us super nice. They were funny, like just a regular neighbor or friend. At prison he may get more amenities, but the guards AND other prisoners are going to hate him I imagine." One user wrote, on the other hand, "He’ll stay in jail while awaiting trial, and jail sucks a lot worse than prison, ask any former convict".

"County is way different from prison. Neither one is good. County is probably more dangerous in a lot of ways, but it really depends on the jail," one user wrote, while another said, "Most inmates prefer prison to county jail as you get more freedoms if you will." "I watched a Louis Theroux documentary about the jail system in America (I’m in England) and I found it absolutely terrifying!! A lot wanted to get their trials over with to get out of jail, whether that was home or prison," one user said.

Kohberger waived his right to a speedy preliminary hearing as he appeared in court on Thursday, January 12. He will not be appearing in court again until June 26. This week, the suspect and his defense team reportedly filed a request for discovery, asking for information about a "co-defendant" in the case.

According to Inside Edition, the probable cause affidavit does not identify a co-defendant. Authorities have also not suggested that Kohberger may have had an accomplice when he committed the crime. After being taken into custody last month, he had reportedly asked law enforcement whether another individual was arrested. 

Kohberger requested in the court filing submitted by his public defender Ann Taylor, "Any written or recorded statements by a co-defendant, and the substance of any relevant oral statement made by a co-defendant whether before or after arrest in response to interrogation by any person known by the co-defendant to be a peace officer or agent of the prosecuting attorney, or which are otherwise relevant to the offense charged."
