Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger spotted for first time since arrest
STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger waived his right to an extradition hearing in a Pennsylvania court on Tuesday, speeding up his transfer to Idaho to stand trial.
Earlier Tuesday, Kohberger was spotted for the first time since his arrest stepping out of a prisoner transport van outside the courthouse in advance of his extradition hearing.
Kohberger, 28, wore a red jail-issue jumpsuit and had his hands shackled in front of him, as two law enforcement officials escorted him to the Monroe County Courthouse at about 10:45 a.m.
He remained stone-faced as reporters pelted him with questions, "Why did you do it?"
At one point the accused mass murderer wore a haunting expression and looked directly at the crowd of photographers and reporters.
