REXBURG, Idaho — Chad Guy Daybell, who is accused of numerous crimes including the murders of his former wife Tammy Daybell, and the two children of his current wife has waived his right to a speedy trial.

“I Chad Daybell, the above-named Defendant hereby waive my statutory right to a speedy trial in the above-entitled proceeding,” court documents filed on Monday read.

Earlier this month, Idaho prosecutors announced that they are planning to seek the death penalty against Daybell.

Currently, Daybell faces 9 felony charges in Fremont County including three first-degree murder charges, criminal conspiracy, conspiracy to commit murder, and two charges of insurance fraud.

Daybell was arrested in June of 2020, just a mile from his home, after the remains of 7-year-old JJ Vallow and 16-year-old Tylee Ryan were found buried on his property. Both children were first reported missing in September of 2019. Daybell’s current wife, Lori Vallow Daybell, was arrested in February of 2020 on two felony counts of desertion and non-support of dependent children after she failed to physically produce JJ and Tylee.
