Judge denies Bryan Kohberger’s motion to dismiss indictment

MOSCOW, Idaho (KIFI) - A grand jury indictment used to charge accused killer Bryan Kohberger is enough to meet the legal standard in Idaho. 

That decision was made today by Latah County Judge John Judge. 

Kohberger is accused of killing four University of Idaho students at an off-campus home in Moscow last November. 

Kohberger's attorneys wanted the grand jury indictment thrown out arguing the jury did not apply the proper standard. 

They argued the grand jury should go beyond probable cause in deciding charges, despite Idaho case law that shows probable cause is enough to indict.

In his argument, defense attorney, Jay Logsdon, said he would fight the precedent.

To that, the judge replied he needed to take it up with the Idaho Supreme Court.

There is no trial date set in this case.
