In the meantime, Kohberger has also been granted his request for a second attorney.
He is currently being held in the Latah County Jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for June.
He faces the death penalty or life in prison if convicted of the highest counts of first-degree murder (one count for each victim). And if convicted of the burglary charge could get up to 10 years in prison.
