REXBURG, Idaho – Magistrate Judge Faren Eddins has ruled that Chad Daybell’s case will continue after probable cause was shown by the state during the preliminary hearing.

Daybell’s hearing lasted two days and finished Tuesday afternoon.

According to Idaho state law, Daybell must now appear for arraignment before a district judge, where he will be advised of his rights and of the procedures the court will follow from that time forward.

Daybell may enter into a plea at that time. If he does not enter a plea or pleads not guilty, the court will set the case for trial.

Eddins said Daybell’s arraignment will take place on Aug. 21 at 9 a.m.

If the defendant pleads guilty or is found guilty after a trial, the next step is to order a presentence investigation. That report is prepared by an investigator assigned to the case and assists the judge in determining a sentence.

“Once the court and the parties have had an opportunity to review the presentence report, a sentencing hearing is held, at which time the judge pronounces the terms of the defendant’s sentence,” district officials said.

Lori Vallow is scheduled to appear in court for her preliminary hearing on Aug. 10-11.
