A fresh search warrant was unsealed, revealing more materials confiscated from Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ house when he was arrested last December on suspicion of murdering four University of Idaho students.

A Smith and Wesson pocket knife, an unidentified knife, a Glock handgun with three empty magazines, black face masks, black gloves, one black hat, “green leafy substance in a plastic bag,” “book with underlining on page 118,” and Kohberger’s AT&T bill were among the items seized from the Albrightsville, Pa., home.

Documents, car documentation, books, a prescription, and technological equipment — including a mobile phone, laptop, and power cable — were all taken from the residence, according to the warrant.

Kohberger, 28, is accused of stabbing to death Madison “Maddie” Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, at an off-campus residence about 4 a.m. on Nov. 13 in Moscow, Idaho.

Kohberger was a Ph.D. student at Washington State University researching criminal justice and criminology at the time of the killings. The institution, located in Pullman, Washington, is only eight miles from the Moscow apartment where the four students were stabbed to death.

Over seven weeks after the triple murder shocked Moscow, Kohberger was visiting his family in Pennsylvania for the holidays when he was apprehended on Dec. 30 at around 1:30 a.m.

According to a second search warrant released earlier this week, officials collected clothing, shoes, a flashlight, four medical-style gloves, and a cheek swab from Kohberger and his parent’s home at the time of his arrest.

According to the probable cause document, saw, Genetic evidence recovered on a knife sheath left near one of the victims, mobile phone pings, and security video tied Kohberger to the murder scene.

After his detention, Kohberger’s flat in Pullman was also searched. The items seized at the time, according to the search warrant obtained by PEOPLE, included one disposable black glove, receipts from Walmart and Marshalls, a dust container vacuum, possible hair strands, one “Fire TV” stick, one possible animal hair strand, one computer tower, an item with a dark red spot, two pieces of an uncased pillow with a “reddish/brown” stain, and mattress covers.

The residence where the killings took place will be destroyed, according to the University of Idaho authorities. Scholarships are also being established in memory of Mogen, Goncalves, Kernodle, and Chapin, according to Green.

Kohberger is scheduled to appear in court again on June 26 for a five-day preliminary hearing. He is being jailed without bail and has yet to enter a plea to the allegations leveled against him.

Due to a wide gag order that prevents authorities engaged in the case and family lawyers for the victims from speaking to the public or media, little information about the case is being revealed.
