BOISE — Chad Daybell stopped by the school district offices where his wife worked just two days after she died to inquire about her life insurance.

Angela Yancey, who works as payroll and benefits administrator at the Sugar-Salem School District where Tammy Daybell worked, testified Thursday that Daybell visited her on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, in the morning to talk about his wife’s life insurance. Tammy Daybell died on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Yancey said it was unusual for a spouse to come in so quickly.

“I explained we could not submit a death claim until we had a death certificate and (Chad Daybell) said, ‘That’s OK. I’ve already ordered eight of them.'”

He wrote on a form that Tammy Daybell had died in her sleep.

Yancey said Tammy Daybell had changed her life insurance policy just six weeks earlier on Sept. 8, choosing the policy with the highest payout after she went to full-time employment.

Thursday was the 17th day of testimony in the trial of Lori Vallow Daybell, who is charged with murder, conspiracy and grand theft in the deaths of her two children, 16-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow. She is also charged with conspiracy in connection with the death of Tammy Daybell, her new husband’s previous wife. Chad Daybell is charged with murder for the same three deaths and will face a separate trial at a later date.

Taylor Ballard, a health insurance broker, told the jury Thursday that Chad Daybell visited her on Oct. 31, 2019, asking about health insurance since their previous insurance was through Tammy Daybell’s work and she had died a few weeks before.

On Nov. 21, 2019, more than two weeks after he married Lori Vallow Daybell, Ballard said Chad Daybell asked how hard it would be to add his wife to the policy if he got married. She answered that it would have to be within 60 days of the wedding.
