MADISON COUNTY, Idaho– Chad Daybell plans to plead not guilty to two felony counts of concealment or destruction of evidence. 

Court documents filed on Monday by Daybell’s attorney, John Prior, show that Daybell entered a not guilty plea and has requested a trial. 

Chad Daybell was arrested on Tuesday, June, 9 after law enforcement discovered human remains on his property. Over the weekend, authorities confirmed the remains found were missing children  JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan. The two kids haven’t been seen since September 2019, and their mother, Lori Vallow, is already in police custody in connection to the case.  

The families of JJ and Tylee confirmed the remains earlier last week. 

Since the discovery of the children’s remains, both families have released statements regarding the loss of Vallow and Ryan. Daybell’s parents have also reached out. 

A court day for a trial still hasn’t been confirmed. The online Idaho court docket lists July 1 and 2 for Daybell’s hearing.
