BOISE, ID (AP) — An Idaho man has been charged with concealing or destroying two sets of human remains after authorities say they uncovered bodies on his property while investigating the disappearance of his wife’s two children.
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.
The remains haven’t been identified yet. He had married the children’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, who has since been charged with child abandonment. Then-7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan haven’t been seen since September.
