The man in authority says killed four University of Idaho students is ready to waive his extradition hearing in November, his lawyer told CBS News. Brian KobergerThe 28-year-old will appear before a judge for the hearing on Tuesday.

Kohberger will still have to be in front of a judge on Tuesday to sign the papers, said Monroe County Chief Public Defender Jason LaBarre.

The four victims — Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho — were found dead Nov. 13 in a house Kernodle, Mogen and Goncalves shared with two other roommates who were unharmed.

Authorities announced Koberger’s arrest Friday in the case, which has drawn national attention and sparked serious speculation on social media over the past six weeks.

“Because of the obvious attention to this case, I would assume that Idaho is now prepared and ready to transport him back,” LaBarre said.

Depending on when Idaho authorities can arrive, he said, Kochberger could be back in the state in as little as 72 hours after the hearing.

LaBar, who said he is only representing Kohberger for the extradition, said the procedure gives authorities 10 days to pick him up.

“But I imagine it will happen pretty quickly,” he said.

Authorities in Idaho said Friday that Koberger, who was arrested in Pennsylvania on a fugitive warrant, faces four counts of first-degree murder and burglary. Moscow Police Chief James Fry said Friday that state laws limit the amount of information about the investigation they can release because the probable cause statement is sealed until Koberger appears in court in Idaho.

LaBar said Saturday he had no details of the investigation to share.

“Since I am only representing him in relation to extradition, I have expressly told him that I do not wish to discuss anything about the case other than what will lead to the extradition hearing.” Because I don’t have a probable cause affidavit, just like everybody else,” Labar said.
