Trial for Chad Daybell to be delayed, Idaho judge rules
ST. ANTHONY, Idaho — In a decision late Friday afternoon, an Idaho judge has ruled that the trial for Chad Daybell will be delayed.
According to East Idaho News, Daybell’s attorney John Prior had filed a motion with the court to move the trial jury to a later date. Judge Steven Boyce granted that motion.
The trial was set to start on Jan. 9, 2023, in Ada County, Idaho. However, Prior requested the delay in the beginning of the trial due to the amount of evidence.
Facing several counts of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the deaths of two of Lori’s children and Chad’s first wife, both Daybell and Vallow Daybell have pleaded not guilty.
Last year, Daybell waived his right to a speedy trial.
Earlier this month, Vallow Daybell’s case was suspended until a determination can be made on her mental competency.
East Idaho News also reports that the judge will meet with the defense and the prosecution to determine a new date for the trial.
