An Idaho judge has ordered prosecutors to provide “a portion” of the genetic genealogy evidence linking a 29-year-old man to the killings of four University of Idaho students in 2022.

The suspect’s attorneys seek to discredit the DNA evidence, but prosecutors argue that detailed genetic genealogy information isn’t necessary since the suspect’s DNA directly matched that found at the crime scene.

The defense claims that the prosecution hasn’t provided full DNA information, citing DNA from three other men found at the crime scene.

“The court has now completed its review of the information provided by the state and orders the state to discover to the defense a portion of the IGG information,” the Judge ruled.

“The specific material to be provided is set forth in a sealed order to protect the privacy of the IGG information, including individuals on the family tree.”

“They have provided full DNA discovery for the sheath, the knife sheath, but not the other three unidentified male DNA samples,” defense attorney Anne Taylor said.

The suspect and his attorney suggest that these DNA samples were never run through the national DNA database to find a match.

“We have given the defense everything that we have received from the lab. They’ve asked for DNA work-ups on other people. To the extent that they don’t have them, they weren’t done,” Latah County Prosecuting Attorney Bill Thompson said. “We can’t produce something that doesn’t exist.”
