Idaho Murder Trial Is Going To Be A LONG Wait -- And Bryan Kohberger Will Be In Prison The Whole Time

Idaho Murder Suspect Bryan Kohberger Trial Date No Bail

After the first few weeks of the University of Idaho murders, we were resigned to a lengthy wait before a suspect was even named. The arrest of Bryan Kohberger on December 30 was a genuine surprise — a rather reassuring one. But now that he’s in custody, the wheels of justice have slowed way back down again…

The alleged killer of four students in Moscow, Idaho — Kaylee Goncalves, Xana KernodleEthan Chapin, and Maddie Mogen — faced a judge on Thursday in a status conference hearing. The entire process took just a few minutes, which is ironic considering how long its ramifications will last.

Kohberger waived his right to a speedy trial, meaning it’s going to take a long time before he faces a jury. The next big step — a preliminary probable cause hearing — won’t even take place until June 26! That’s over five months! And it’s not even the actual trial!

Thankfully for everyone’s peace of mind, the judge did NOT grant the 28-year-old bail. He’s been remanded to state custody, meaning he’ll be behind bars for the entire wait until the trial.

We can’t say we’re surprised Kohberger isn’t in a hurry to get to the trial — not with the wild amount of evidence they have on him.

Oh, BTW, those scratches on Kohberger’s face in the hearing? According to TMZ, sources say those are self-inflicted from shaving. Hmm…
