The father of a University of Idaho coed who lost her life in the fatal November 2022 off-campus stabbing of four students claims that quadruple murder suspect Bryan Kohberger is receiving preferential treatment during his pre-trial detention, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In an interview, Steve Goncalves, whose daughter Kaylee was killed in the attack, said, "I’ve been informed that his pretrial privileges, like his five suits, video and computer special treatment and vegan meals are unprecedented in the history of Idaho,” as Front Page Detectives reported.

Kohberger faces the death penalty if convicted — but his legal team plan to fight to strike the option.

Kohberger reportedly made requests when he was booked into jail regarding his vegan meals, and Latah County Sheriff Richard Skiles said those requests would accommodate.

However, he noted officials “are not going to buy new pots and pans,” the Independent reported.

The New York Post previously reported that a family member said Kohberger “went above and beyond being vegan.”

This included relatives having to “buy new pots and pans because he would not eat from anything that had ever had meat cooked in them.”

Goncalves also said quadruple-murder suspect Kohberger initially was wearing an orange jumpsuit during his court appearances, but during his Sept. 13 appearance, he wore a suit and tie. He questioned who paid for it, but his request for information was denied due to a gag order in place, Fox News Digital reported.

“They won’t tell us," Goncalves said, adding, "but I witnessed the moment they agreed not to handcuff him in court.”

Kohberger was connected to the crime through DNA evidence found on a knife sheath found at the scene.

In November 2022, Kohberger, 28, was studying for a Ph.D. in criminology at Washington State University when police believe he broke into a home in Moscow, Idaho, and fatally stabbed four students — Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.

Kohberger was eventually charged with four counts of first-degree murder and pleaded not guilty.

His trial was set to start on Oct. 2, but Kohberger recently waived his right to a speedy trial, delaying trial proceedings indefinitely.

Both the prosecutors and the defense have filed documents requesting to restrict cameras in the courtroom. The judge will rule on this at a later date.
