The charges came hours after Rexburg police executed another search warrant at Chad Daybell’s Salem home.

The site where the remains of his stepchildren Tylee Ryan, 17, and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow were found on June 9.

According to the outlet, officers went into the house, exterior buildings and were seen in the backyard with cameras.

They left with brown evidence bags. It wasn’t immediately clear if the search was tied directly to Vallow’s new charges.

Earlier this month, Daybell, 51, pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of concealment of evidence.

Vallow has been locked up in Madison County Jail since March on two counts of felony desertion and nonsupport of children along with three misdemeanors.

The kids had been missing since September, Daybell and Vallow have been accused of lying to and not cooperating with police during the months-long investigation.

Friends of Vallow said that she and Daybell were part of a doomsday cult, called Preparing a People, which believe in hearing up for a second coming of Jesus Christ and the end of days, according to an interview with the the EastIdahoNews.

Melanie Gibb, friend of Vallow, allegedly told investigators that Vallow told her she believed her son had become a “zombie” shortly before he was reported missing.

Daybell had taught Vallow that a “zombie” was a person inhabited by a “dark spirit” and that they only way to return a person’s true spirit to their body was by killing them, Gibb said, according to court documents.
