Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger has offered up an alibi in a bid to prove his innocence after four students were stabbed to death in their college home. 

Kohberger has claimed through his attorneys that he was out driving on the night of the quadruple killings on November 13, 2022 – as he often did to watch the moon and stars. 

In a newly released court filing, his lawyers said that his demanding schedule lecturing at Washington State University meant he didn’t have time for his normal hobbies of running and hiking. 

Instead, he claims to have taken up driving at nighttime as a pastime, and says that phone records will show he frequently drove around the countryside near Wawai County Park in Whitman County. 

Prosecutors say they tracked Kohberger’s phone to the home where he allegedly murdered four University of Idaho students, however his attorneys say they plan to present an expert on cellphone information to dispute this.

Last year, Kohberger’s legal team had claimed that he was out driving alone on the night of the murders, but declined to offer specifics. 

As the victim’s families spoke out over ongoing delays, a judge gave them a Wednesday deadline to provide more details on the alibi, after previously saying his excuse of driving alone was insufficient – branding it a ‘so-called alibi.’ 

Now, Kohberger’s lawyers say they have further details of the alibi, but claimed that prosecutors haven’t shared more discovery information as requested.

They claim that without the discovery evidence, the cellphone expert’s testimony will ‘also reveal that critical exculpatory evidence, further corroborating Mr. Kohberger’s alibi, was either not preserved or has been withheld.’
