Chad Daybell — the husband of Lori Vallow, who is the mother of two missing Idaho children — was arrested Tuesday after authorities said they recovered human remains at his home in rural Idaho, according to the Deseret News.

Chad Daybell was booked into Fremont County Jail after the discovery, which took place after police agencies served a search warrant on Daybell’s property.

His wife — Lori Vallow Daybell — is currently jailed in Rexburg and charged with felony child abandonment. Police said her two children — Joshua “JJ” Vallow and Tylee Ryan — went missing in September 2019.
