Idaho Murder Suspect Chad Daybell Files Motions to Remove Death Penalty

Chad Daybell

Chad Daybell’s attorney, John Prior, has filed multiple motions in an attempt to eliminate the death penalty from Daybell’s murder case. Daybell is facing charges for the murder of his first wife, Tammy, and the children of his current wife, Lori Vallow Daybell – J.J. Vallow and Tylee Ryan. Additionally, he is accused of conspiracy to commit murder in all three deaths and conspiracy to commit grand theft by deception in the deaths of J.J. and Tylee.

One of the motions filed seeks to strike the death penalty based on relative culpability. The defense contends that Daybell holds less responsibility than his co-defendant, Lori Vallow Daybell, who is not facing the death penalty. Another motion aims to limit the state to consistent arguments, emphasizing that the differing culpability of each defendant is crucial to the prosecution’s case and affects the constitutionality of any resulting sentence.

Furthermore, a motion has been filed to strike the death penalty as arbitrary, capricious, and disproportionate. This motion argues that Daybell was not informed of the possible death penalty when he waived his right to a speedy trial.

A hearing on these motions is scheduled for November 29th, where the court will consider these arguments in the ongoing murder case against Chad Daybell.
