Police reportedly arrested a suspect in the killings of four University of Idaho students in eastern Pennsylvania, a little more than a month after the murders.

Documents filed Friday in Monroe County Court said Bryan C. Kohberger, 28, was being held for extradition to Idaho on a warrant for first degree murder.

A law enforcement official confirmed the arrest on the condition of anonymity, according to The Associated Press.

A student named Bryan Kohberger is listed as a Ph.D. student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University.

The Idaho students — Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin — were found stabbed to death at a home near the University of Idaho campus on Nov. 13.

Moscow police will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. today. The conference will be streamed live on YouTube.

This is a developing story.
