MOSCOW, IDAHO : Steve and Kristi Goncalves are the parents of Kaylee Goncalves - one of the victims in the Idaho murder case. In an interview on 'Hannity' on January 2, they commented on the arrest of suspect Bryan Kohberger. They said they feel "lucky" knowing their daughter's alleged murderer is behind bars nearly seven weeks after her death. 

Kaylee's mother told host Sean Hannity the past few weeks have been "like a nightmare you just never, ever wake up from." "There's not a second throughout the day that I don't think about Kaylee and what happened to her. It's sickening," she said.

"Nothing feels worse than having nobody and just nothing but doubt. In seven weeks of that or close to seven weeks of that was a tremendous amount of pressure on us," Steve Goncalves said. Steve, who was unsure of how the investigation was going previously, said investigators did a "tremendous job" now that the arrest has been made. Based on what he said, one might say that the awaited arrest has bought him some sense of relief that justice will be served. "I think that you know, it's never fast enough for a father. You're impatient and you want to know everything right then and there. But I feel good. I feel like they've done a tremendous job," he added. 

Host Sean Hannity asked what the appropriate justice would be in the case. "Well, considering that this person went in there that night with the intent to kill and showed no mercy, unprovoked, and killed our daughter, her best friend, and their two friends. We are glad that we live in the state of Idaho with the death penalty," Kristi Goncalves said.

The accused, Bryan Christopher Kohberger, a 28-year-old criminology PhD student, was arrested on December 30 from his parent's home in eastern Pennsylvania. He is being charged with first-degree murder of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, and Xana Kernodle, students of University of Idaho, and felony burglary. Kohberger appeared at the Pennsylvania court on Tuesday, January 3. In the anticipated first court appearance, the suspect arrived in handcuffs, wearing a red jail-issue jumpsuit for his extradition hearing. After waving his right to an extradition hearing, the alleged killer is set to be flown to Idaho.
