Defense of alleged Idaho murderer to provide evidence he was not at the scene of the killings

Bryan Kohberger faces the death penalty for the murders at the University of Idaho. The suspect is adamant about his right to remain silent.

The Idaho crimes are still making headlines. Months after the bodies of four murdered students were found in the small town of Moscow and the alleged perpetrator, Bryan Kohberger, was arrested, the case took another turn. According to the suspect's defense team, they have evidence that Kohberger was not at the scene on the night of Nov. 13.

The lawyers did not say where the alleged perpetrator of the murders was but did file a not guilty plea on his behalf in which they stated that they had the necessary evidence to corroborate his innocence. It was his attorney, Anne Taylor, who decided to file the legal brief. In the statement, she claimed that Kohberger had an alibi as to his whereabouts. However, they will not release it until they believe the time is right:

Evidence corroborating Mr. Kohberger being at a location other than the King Road address will be disclosed pursuant to discovery and evidentiary rules as well as statutory requirements.

Kohberger continues to keep quiet about the events in Idaho

In the document, Taylor assures that they did not rely solely on the affidavits Kohberger gave assuring that he was innocent of the charges against him. On the contrary, she claims, they obtained evidence that the alleged perpetrator was indeed not on King Road when the four students were killed:

A defendant’s denial of the charges against him does not constitute an alibi, but as soon as he offers evidence that he was at some place other than where the crime of which he is charged was committed, he is raising the alibi defense. It is anticipated this evidence may be offered by way of cross-examination of witnesses produced by the State as well as calling expert witnesses.

Meanwhile, Kohberger "stands firm" about his right to remain silent as well as to testify on his own behalf during the trial to be held in October.
