The Latto County Circuit Court Clerk confirms this Brian Koberger will now appear in court on Monday, May 22 at 9:00 a.m., where he is likely to enter a guilty plea.
A Latta County Circuit Court clerk said a grand jury indicted Koberger on all counts. With the grand jury indictment, a preliminary hearing previously scheduled for June 26 was canceled.
