LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO: The Idaho jail holding Bryan Kohberger, the suspect arrested in the murders of the four University of Idaho students, will reportedly accommodate the suspect's vegan diet. The 28-year-old, Washington University graduate, is currently being held in the Latah County Jail after he was denied bail in his first appearance in the Idaho court on January 5.

Latah County Sheriff Richard Skiles told News Nation that the county jail's staff is willing to make arrangements for Kohberger's dietary requirements, “but we are not going to buy new pots and pans or anything like that,” referencing reports of the suspect's ex-aunt saying she needed to buy new pans to feed Kohberger.

Kohberger was arrested in Pennsylvania on December 30 for killing Kaylee Gonvalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, in their off-campus home on November 13, 2022. He arrived in Moscow on Thursday, January 5, after agreeing to his extradition to Idaho during his first Pennsylvania court appearance. On Thursday, he also appeared in front of the Moscow court, shortly after a probable cause affidavit outlining prosecutors' case against him was shared online.

The suspect's rights were then read by a Magistrate Court judge Megan Marshall and charges against him were outlined. The judge then asked Kohberger whether he understood the charges. Clenching his jaw, Kohberger responded "Yes" with a straight face. At one point Kohberger was captured smiling at his new public attorney Anne Taylor. It is unclear what prompted the grin, six days after he shot to notoriety as one of America's most infamous alleged mass murderers.

The shocking probable cause affidavit released online also revealed that Dylan Mortensen, identified as DM in court records, saw the killer "with bushy eyebrows" walked past her as she stood "frozen." DM also said she heard a male voice say something to the effect of "it’s ok, I’m going to help you." Soon after "a 5'10" or taller, male not very muscular, but athletically build, with bushy eyebrows" walked past DM. She stood in a "frozen shock phase" as the suspect alleged to be Bryan Kohberger walked out from the sliding glass backdoor.
