MOSCOW, Idaho (Court TV) — The public will get a chance to see what’s happening in future proceedings for accused quadruple murderer Bryan Kohberger, but the court will determine how much.
Kohberger is charged with murder and burglary in the deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin and Madison Mogen, University of Idaho students who were found murdered in their off-campus home in Nov. 2022.
Both the prosecution and defense attorneys have fought to keep cameras out of the courtroom for all hearings, while the media — including Court TV — has filed motions arguing that cameras be allowed.
In a ruling issued Monday, Judge John Judge ruled that all future proceedings in the case will be livestreamed, using the court’s own equipment.
“This will help to alleviate the concerns raised by both the defense and the State, but at the same time will ensure the public still has access to see the proceedings for themselves if they cannot attend the hearings in-person,” the order states.
At previous hearings, Judge had placed strict limitations on media allowed inside the courtroom, including not allowing any video or photos to be taken until he had taken the bench or after he recessed proceedings.
Court TV will broadcast and livestream all proceedings made available by the court.
