Fort Hall Fire Department

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - A school bus in Fort Hall goes up in flames, plans for a new intersection in Rexburg and Daybells jury selection begins. These are just a few things you should know this morning.

  1. Jury selection is underway for the Chad Daybell trial. 

    Much of yesterday's questioning centered around whether the members of the jury pool were capable of being unbiased and impartial. Especially considering the media coverage of the case, and that the death penalty is on the table.

    The goal of these proceedings is to select 12 jurors and six alternates who can fairly try the case.
