BOISE, Idaho  An Idaho court is making progress toward seating a jury in the Chad Daybell trial as they are nearing the halfway point of the first part of jury selection in the triple murder case.

The jury selection process on Tuesday played out much like it did Monday, with potential jurors going through voir dire and either passing on to the main pool or being excused for cause.

Meanwhile, JJ Vallow’s grandparents are getting ready to head to Boise, and Larry Woodcock gave his thoughts on the process now playing out in the courtroom.

Prosecutor Lindsey Blake Tuesday implored prospective jurors to answer truthfully on whether they were up for the task.

“As you sit here today and answer these questions, we’re going to ask you to be brutally honest,” she said to one of the panels.

Some were honest about life circumstances that would prevent them from serving on what’s expected to be around a 10-week trial. Others were honest about their knowledge of Chad Daybell’s case, his wife Lori Vallow Daybell, and the murders of Lori’s children Joshua ‘JJ’ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, and Chad’s late wife Tammy Daybell.
