BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Prosecutors plan to begin sketching out their evidence against a couple at the center of a bizarre case of two missing children whose bodies were later unearthed in rural Idaho.

The preliminary hearing Monday could offer new details in a case with ties to doomsday beliefs and other mysterious deaths.

It will help a judge decide if the charges against Chad Daybell will move forward in state court.

He’s charged with concealing evidence by destroying or hiding the bodies of 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan.

He married their mom, Lori Vallow Daybell, who’s charged with conspiring to help keep the bodies hidden. Both have pleaded not guilty.
