The court ruled on March 21, 2023 that Daybell, who is accused of conspiring to murder her two children and her new husband’s deceased wife, will no longer be eligible for the death penalty. She will be on trial beginning on April 3. 7th District Judge Steven Boyce made the ruling.

Chad Daybell, her newest spouse, has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, conspiracy, and grand theft in relation to the deaths of Lori Vallow’s children, 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and Tylee Ryan, who was last seen a few days before her 17th birthday. They are also accused of being involved with Chad Daybell’s deceased wife, Tammy Daybell, who died in October 2019.

The murders were “particularly heinous, atrocious or cruel,” according to prosecutors, who wrote in a motion that they would seek the death penalty, and the Vallow “exhibited total disdain for human life.”


The defense team for Vallow submitted a counter motion to have the death sentence thrown out earlier this month, arguing to the judge that the jury pool could have been tainted by media coverage of the case, the defendant suffers from a mental illness that is known to the court, the prosecution violated numerous discovery rules, and Idaho lacks the chemicals necessary to carry out death row executions.

According to court documents posted online by, Chad Daybell was additionally charged with first-degree murder for Tammy’s death and with two charges of insurance fraud, while his wife was also accused of grand theft in connection with the Social Security benefits for her children.

According to police reports, Charles Vallow was shot and killed by Lori Vallow Daybell’s brother, Alexander Lamar Cox, while he picked up his kid from his estranged wife. She and her brother allegedly planned the murder of Vallow, according to the indictment.

Lori Vallow Daybell had believed she was “a god designated to carry out the mission of the 144,000 during Christ’s second coming in July 2020,” according to divorce filings Charles Vallow filed before his death. Some apocalyptic books by Chad Daybell are loosely based on Mormon doctrine. Both were active members of a group that encourages end-times readiness.
