Chad Daybell, the husband of Lori Vallow, who is charged with desertion in the disappearance of two of her children last year, was charged Wednesday with two counts of concealing evidence after human remains were found on his Idaho property, and his bail was set at $1 million.
During Daybell’s initial court hearing Wednesday via Zoom, prosecuting attorney Rob Wood revealed that the remains found on Daybell’s property were those of children, and said the state found the manner of concealment of one of the bodies to be “particularly egregious.”
Wood did not elaborate on the state of the body, and a probable cause affidavit has been sealed, according to court documents.

Authorities in Idaho relied on cellphone tracking data to locate the remains of two children this month after they had been missing since September, court documents say.
The remains of Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 17, were found June 9 on the property of Chad Daybell, the two children’s stepfather, who married their mother, Lori Vallow, just weeks after his wife of 30 years died under “suspicious circumstances” last year.
Police used information from the cellphone of the children’s late uncle, Alex Cox, to find their remains buried on Daybell’s property, a probable cause affidavit unsealed Friday says.
Cox fatally shot Charles Vallow, Lori Vallow’s ex-husband, in July 2019. Both Lori Vallow and Daybell are in custody in Idaho awaiting court hearings on separate felony charges.

Experts sealed off a former home of killer Michel Fourniret, dubbed the “Ogre of the Ardennes”, in northern France — more than 200 kilometres from the town east of Paris where Estelle Mouzin disappeared on her way home from school in January 2003.
Fourniret was jailed for life in May 2008 for the murder of seven girls and young women, and charged over Mouzin’s disappearance last November after his ex-wife contradicted his alibi.
Detectives first considered Fourniret a suspect in the girl’s disappearance in 2006, after they found a photo of Mouzin on his computer.
