Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger could claim in his trial that home where ... trends now

Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger could claim in his upcoming trial that the home where the four students were killed was a 'party house' to explain why his DNA was found there.

The former criminology PhD student is accused of stabbing four University of Idaho students to death in their home off-campus on November 13. Kaylee Goncalves, 21, died alongside her best friend Maddie Mogen, 21, housemate Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.

He has been held at Latah County Jail in Moscow, Idaho, since January while awaiting a trial which has been pushed back after he waived his right to a speedy trial. 

Criminal Defense Attorney Jack Rice says Kohberger's defense team could claim that the off-campus property where the murders took place was a wild party house where plenty of students would go. 

It comes after FBI agents returned to the scene to collect more evidence, taking precise measurements of each room for 3D modeling that can be presented to the jury when the grisly case eventually goes to trial.

'One of the most important parts of this case is that DNA, and what we know is that this is a party house,' attorney Rice said in new documentary clip obtained by The New York Post. 

'We know that there are hundreds of kids in this house – it could have even included him. 

'And the thing is, if he was in this house, are you suggesting that these four know everybody who's been there? I doubt that.'

'All of sudden, you might have a completely different trial,' he added in The Case Against Bryan Kohberger documentary which airs on Court TV on Sunday.

A knife sheath with Kohberger’s DNA on it was found by police alongside the bodies of the victims last year. 

But the suspect's defense team could say that because hundreds of students may have previously partied inside the house, his DNA was could have been there before the murders, according to Rice. 

The defense previously revealed that they would be contesting the notion that Kohberger's DNA was left at the scene on the knife sheath. 

They also claim that DNA from three other unidentified men was also found
