Man married to missing kids’ mom charged with hiding remains

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho man has been charged with concealing or destroying two sets of human remains after authorities say they uncovered children’s bodies on his property while investigating the disappearance of his wife’s two kids.

The remains haven’t yet been identified.

The case has drawn global attention for its ties to the couple’s doomsday beliefs and the mysterious deaths of their former spouses.

An Idaho prosecutor filed the felony charges against Chad Daybell on Wednesday, and he’s being held on $1 million bail.

The children’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, has already been charged with child abandonment.

Then-7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan haven’t been seen since September.
