FREMONT COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Chad Daybell entered a not guilty plea to all charges during his arraignment before Judge Steven Boyce during an arraignment on Friday.

Daybell, 52, is charged with concealing evidence by destroying or hiding the bodies of 7-year-old Joshua "JJ" Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan at his eastern Idaho home. Investigators found their remains during a search in June, months after the kids were last seen in September.

Daybell's pretrial conference has been scheduled for Dec. 10 at 10:30 a.m.

Daybell's trial has been scheduled for Monday, January 11, 2021 to January 29, 2021.

Daybell late last year married the kids' mom, Lori Vallow Daybell, who's charged with conspiring to help him keep the bodies hidden and faces the same hearing next month. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Vallow Daybell's arraignment before Judge Dane H. Watkins Jr. in Fremont County District Court has been rescheduled for Thursday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m.

She is currently being held on $1 million bond on two felony counts of conspiracy to alter or destroy evidence in connection with the deaths of her two children.
