Chad Daybell faces two conspiracy cases to destroy, alter, or hide evidence related to the disappearance and death of his stepchildren, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow.

Chad’s wife, Lori Vallow-Daybell, is due to appear before a judge on Jan. 6 to discuss a similar transfer motion and a motion to dismiss her cases in Fremont County.
