Xana Kernodle 'fought back' against killer and 'repeatedly grabbed knife' ... trends now
University of Idaho victim Xana Kernodle is said to have fought back against her attacker and repeatedly grabbed the knife after her friends were stabbed to death, sources claim.
Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21, who were found in the same bed on November 13, were killed first before the killer, alleged to be Bryan Kohberger, brutally murdered Kernodle, 20, and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20.
Sources told News Nation that Kernodle's fingers were nearly severed off from grabbing the knife and repeatedly fighting back.
The source's information matches what Kernodle's father Jeffrey Kernodle revealed in November.
Jeffrey Kernodle told CBS 5 that autopsy reports showed that his daughter's skin showed 'bruises, torn by the knife.'

Recently, it was revealed that three University of Idaho students claimed they saw Kohberger in the student union 'sitting by himself' weeks before the killings.
One student who identified herself as Chelsea, a sophomore, said she saw Kohberger, a student at the nearby Washington State University, eating alone in the food court just weeks before the November 13 slayings.
'He was the type to stare,' she said. 'He wouldn't look away if you caught him staring.
'Like he wanted you to notice that he was looking at you. He didn't smile, didn't nod, didn't say anything. Just stared.'
Chelsea told PEOPLE that Kohberger's stare was making her 'uncomfortable,' and that she and her friends left to eat outside 'because we wanted to get away from him.'
Another female student at the school said she, too, grew 'uncomfortable' over Kohberger's stare after allegedly running into him multiple times on campus.
