Idaho quadruple murders suspect Bryan Kohberger on Monday arrived in court for his arraignment.
According to reports, Kohberger remained silent during his arraignment when the judge asked him to enter a plea to the charges.
The judge ended up entering not guilty pleas on behalf of Kohberger, CBS reported.
Kohberger was indicted by a secret grand jury last week and charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of burglary in the slayings of four University of Idaho students.
Bryan Kohberger, 28, is accused of fatally stabbing 20-year-old Ethan Chapin of Conway, Washington; 21-year-old Madison Mogen of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; 20-year-old Xana Kernodle of Avondale, Arizona; and 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves of Rathdrum, Idaho on November 13.

According to the court documents, Kohberger’s DNA was found on a tan leather knife sheath left behind on Maddie Mogen’s bed on the 3rd floor at the King Road Residence.
“The sheath was later processed and had ‘Ka-Bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia stamped on the outside of it,” Idaho police officer Brett Payne wrote in the 19-page affidavit. “The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”
Pennsylvania unsealed search warrants that revealed a number of items seized by law enforcement from Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ home during a December 30 raid.
Authorities seized black gloves, a Glock, a knife (possibly the murder weapon?), black face masks, ‘green leafy substance’ in a plastic bag and other items.
Police also seized parts of Bryan Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra.
It could take 6 months or longer for this murder case to go to trial.
Prosecutors have not disclosed whether they will pursue the death penalty.
