Bryan Kohberger Defense Challenges Idaho Prosecutors

Bryan Kohberger, who is accused of killing four University of Idaho students in 2022, was back in court Thursday for another pre-trial hearing where his defense pressed the Moscow Police Department detectives about the mishandling of phone records linked to his alibi.

Moscow Police Detective Lawrence Mowery testified on Thursday about his role in the investigation, admitting that he did not save files on his computer from Kohberger’s cellphone the night of the murders, but expressed to the court that he was confident he could replicate the missing data.

Earlier this month, prosecutors argued Kohberger’s alibi, which his lawyers filed more than a year after the murders, was too vague when his defense claimed he was driving around looking at “the moon and the stars.”

Kohberger’s defense team claims that prosecutors are withholding evidence in the case, which reportedly includes dashcam footage in connection to the search warrant of Kohberger’s Pennsylvania home, cellphone tower data, and video and audio recordings of a white sedan near the scene of the killings, the Idaho Statesman first reported.

Investigators claim that they have phone pings that place Kohberger near the house the day of the murders, but Kohberger’s defense argued that he was nowhere near the house where the killings happened.

According to a probable cause affidavit connected to his arrest warrant, police allegedly found his DNA on a knife sheath under the body of one of the victims.
