Coroner: Idaho students were stabbed to death in their beds

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Four University of Idaho students who were found dead in a rental house Sunday were stabbed to death in their beds and likely were asleep. That’s according to Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt. She also told NewsNation on Friday that each victim suffered multiple stab wounds from a “pretty large knife.” Mabbutt’s comments expanded on the autopsy reports released Thursday that concluded the four students were murdered by being stabbed to death. The killings have shaken the community of Moscow. It’s an Idaho Panhandle town of 25,000 residents that last saw a homicide about five years ago.
