No one has been charged for either children's death yet, but Chad Daybell faces two counts of concealing evidence.

IDAHO, USA — The lawyer representing Chad Daybell filed a not-guilty plea to charges relating to the case surrounding the deaths of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan.

A pair of human remains were discovered on Daybell’s property last week, and they were later confirmed to be the children by family and authorities.

On Friday, Daybell’s lawyer John Prior entered the not-guilty plea to two counts of destruction or concealment of evidence in Idaho court and requested a pretrial and jury trial.

Meanwhile, their mother, Lori Vallow, remains in jail for child desertion charges.

JJ and Tylee both disappeared in September.
