On Tuesday, authorities made the shocking discovery many had feared when they found remains, believed to be those of the missing kids, on Daybell’s property.
Daybell is charged with two counts of destruction, alteration, and concealment of evidence.
He is also currently under investigation for potential murder, attempted murder and conspiracy charges in the death of his first wife.
Vallow was arrested in February on charges of failing to produce her two missing children to police, Vallow currently faces a slew of other charges including desertion and nonsupport of dependent children. She has pleaded not guilty.
Daybell has not yet entered a plea.
Both are being held in the Madison County Jail on a $1 million bail.
Daybell's attorney did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Like others, Chapple is upset that the missing children are gone. “It’s sad,” she says. “At the same time, the family needs closure.”
The community, Chapple says, is relieved that Daybell has been arrested. “The public feels that it’s long overdue that he’s finally been arrested.”
