A report says that Bryan Kohberger’s two sisters were fired from their jobs because of their ties to their alleged killer brother.
NewsNation said that Melissa and Amanda Kohberger were fired a few months after their brother was arrested for kil*ling four University of Idaho students last year.
“Both of Kohberger’s parents are retired, and I’ve heard that the family is in very, very bad financial shape right now, especially since the sisters are now out of work,” Brian Entin, a national correspondent, said Monday.
“We know that just being related to Kohberger has cost his sisters a lot of money, even though they are not his sisters.”
Even though the sisters were never linked to the crime, they were fired.
Melissa Kohberger worked in New Jersey as a therapist for people with mental health problems.
After four college students were k*illed, but before her brother was charged with the crime, the 31-year-old counselor wrote a poem.
Amanda had a job as an actress, but NewsNation wasn’t sure if that was the job she was said to have been fired from.
She was in the 2011 low-budget horror movie “Two Days Back,” in which her character was k*illed by being stabbed, cut, and hit with hatchets.
Since Kohberger has been in jail in Idaho, neither the sisters nor their parents have gone to see him. Idaho is about 2,500 miles from their home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania.
The family does, however, talk on the phone, the news source said.
A fellow inmate said that the alleged k*iller spends his days obsessively watching news stories about himself.
Kohberger was given a TV in his private cell, and he can choose what he wants to watch.
The former criminology doctoral student was charged with four counts of first-degree mu*rder for the deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20, in their off-campus house.
Kohberger hasn’t said how he will plead yet, and a preliminary hearing is set for the end of June.
