Vallow and her husband, Chad Daybell, are accused of killing 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow. They’re scheduled to stand trial together in January 2023. Daybell already pleaded not guilty.

The case was delayed for 11 months because Vallow had been declared mentally unfit to stand trial. Last week, she was determined to be competent.

Vallow is also accused of conspiring to kill Daybell’s first wife, Tammy Daybell. She pleaded not guilty to that charge as well, according to East Idaho News.

Investigators have found that Daybell, an author who wrote a series of Doomsday books, and Vallow were part of a group that believed the second coming of Christ was imminent.

When Charles Vallow filed for divorce from Lori, he wrote that she believed herself to be “a God assigned to carry out the work of the 144,000 at Christ’s second coming in July 2020 and that if (Charles) got in the way of her mission she would kill him.”

Tammy Daybell’s death in October 2019 was initially ruled as due to natural causes. But when Chad Daybell remarried just weeks later, the authorities became suspicious and exhumed her body. An autopsy was completed in February 2021, but Tammy’s cause of death still has not been publicly announced.

Charles Vallow was fatally shot in Arizona in July 2019 by Lori Vallow’s brother, Alex Cox, who claimed he acted in self-defense. Cox died from a blood clot in December 2019. Lori Vallow was later charged with conspiracy to commit murder in that case, which was separated from the Idaho charges because it occurred in a different state.
