SALT LAKE CITY — Chad Daybell’s attorney has objected to a scheduling order to meet a deadline for jury questionnaires the East Idaho News reported.

Attorney John Prior filed the motion with the objection last week. The deadline to submit those questionnaires is Jan. 9 the report said. A judge granted Idaho prosecutors’ request to join the trials together last May as co-conspirators in the killings of JJ Vallow, Tylee Ryan, and Tammy Daybell.

JJ and Tylee were Lori Daybell’s children and Tammy Daybell was Chad Daybell’s wife. Lori Daybell and Chad Daybell have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

“District Judge Steven Boyce ruled on Dec. 16 that questions for potential jurors must be submitted by Jan. 9 to be included in court proceedings to find a fair and impartial jury,” the East Idaho News reported.

The news outlet also said that Prior will request another delay in the trial which was scheduled to begin on April 3.

Prior claimed it would be impossible to review all of the evidence and prepare a questionnaire before the trial date and that is why he will file a second motion to continue the trial the East Idaho News reported.

In November a judge denied a request from Chad Daybell’s attorney to sever his murder trial from his wife’s murder trial. The ruling set the stage for the two to be tried simultaneously next year in Boise for the murders of Lori Vallow Daybell’s children.

Chad Daybell’s lawyers argued the two cases should be separated, saying their version of the facts would be different from Lori Vallow’s. Another court date is set for Daybell and his wife on Feb. 27.
