Kohberger was arrested for the slayings of four University of Idaho students last year. His sisters, Melissa and Amanda Kohberger, were let go in the months that followed.
“Both of Kohberger’s parents are retired and I’m told the family is in very, very bad shape financially right now especially because the sisters are now unemployed,” national correspondent Brian Entin said.
“We know that even his sisters’ just being related to Kohberger has really taken a toll on their livelihood.”

Melissa, 31, had been employed as a mental health therapist in New Jersey, per the report, and Amanda is an actress. There were no details on her current employment or project.
Back in 2011, Amanda starred in the horror flick Two Days Back in which her character was brutally stabbed. Neither sister nor their parents have visited Bryan Kohberger since he’s been behind bars, NewsNation reported. Bryan Kohberger is in Idaho, while his family is from Albrightsville, Pennsylvania.
According to reports, Kohberger has a private cell with a television and continuously watches news coverage of himself.
A former criminology doctoral student, he was charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20, in their off-campus house.
He is awaiting a preliminary hearing in June.
