Chad Daybell pleads ‘not guilty’ at arraignment hearing

EastIdahoNews reports Kay Woodcock was not expecting to become so emotional during Chad Daybell’s arraignment Wednesday morning.

Woodcock traveled from Louisiana to St. Anthony on the one-year anniversary of her grandson, Joshua “JJ” Vallow, being found buried in Daybell’s backyard with his sister, Tylee Ryan.

The grieving grandmother sat on the first row of the courtroom next to Colby Ryan, JJ and Tylee’s older brother. When Daybell pleaded not guilty to eight felony charges, including murder and conspiracy to commit murder, Woodcock started to cry and grabbed Ryan’s hand.

Daybell and his wife, Lori Vallow Daybell, were indicted by a grand jury on May 24. They are also charged in connection to the death of Chad Daybell’s first wife, Tammy Daybell. Three of Chad and Tammy’s children sat behind their father during the arraignment and quickly left the courthouse following the hearing.

A hearing will be held on June 23 to set a trial date for Daybell. Lori Vallow Daybell has been declared incompetent and her proceedings are on hold until she is deemed fit for trial.

Woodcock is pleased proceedings are finally moving forward in Chad Daybell’s case and plans to be there every step of the way.
