Preliminary hearings resumed Tuesday for Chad Daybell, who is charged in the case of two Idaho children found dead in June after a monthslong search.
Daybell’s wife, Lori Vallow, who is the mother of the children, Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow, has also been charged.
The hearings began Monday and included harrowing testimonies from detectives who found the bodies of Tylee and JJ on Daybell’s property on June 9, including that JJ had been found with duct tape around arms, feet and head, which was inside a black plastic bag. Tylee’s remains were found in a melted green bucket, detectives said.
Tuesday’s hearings offered a glimpse of Daybell and Vallow’s relationship.
Melanie Gibb, a friend of the two, testified that Vallow was a very “convincing and persuasive” person. Gibb also said that Vallow and Daybell were infatuated with one another.
Gibb admitted on the stand that she lied to police
