TANGLED WEB: Lawyer for Idaho murder suspect has deeper connection to victims

OPINION | This article contains the author's opinion.

Bryan Kohberger, the accused Idaho killer who allegedly murdered four students, is represented by defense attorney Anne Taylor.

The case is quickly becoming a tangled web as we learn Taylor has previously represented at least two more of his alleged murder victims’ parents.

Kohberger is accused of killing Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin. All of the victims were in their early 20s.

Taylor represented Kernodle’s mom at the time of his arrest. She also had previously worked for Mogen’s father and stepfather, court records show.

Taylor withdrew and was assigned to defend Kohberger following his arrest in Pennsylvania.

Taylor previously represented Mogen’s dad, Benjamin Mogen, on multiple drug charges in 2020.

More on this story via Fox News:

Mogen’s stepmom, Korie Hatrock, had Taylor represent her on drug charges last year, Inside Edition reported over the weekend. Taylor was previously replaced on that case, records show.

Taylor has not responded to requests for comment from Fox News Digital.

Latah County Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall has limited attorneys, investigators and other parties close to the Kohberger case from discussing it with the media – however her gag order is limited to specific aspects of the case.
