LATEST ON LORI VALLOW’S ARIZONA INDICTMENT
Lori Vallow, also known as the “doomsday mom,” is facing the possibility of a trial in Arizona following her recent conviction for the murder of her two children and conspiracy to murder her former husband’s wife.
It has been revealed that she will first be sentenced in Idaho in a few months before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office proceeds with prosecuting her for two additional cases.
The charges against Vallow in Arizona include the murder of her fourth husband, Charles Valois, and the attempted murder of her nieces.
However, the exact timeline for her trial remains uncertain.
According to Justin Lum, an estimator, it could take at least a couple of months for Vallow to be extradited to Arizona after her sentencing in Idaho.
Previously, both the Chandler and Gilbert police departments had investigated Vallow’s current husband, Chad Daybell, but concluded that there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction.
However, with the abundance of evidence presented during the recent trial, authorities may reconsider their stance.
Rachel Mitchell, a prosecutor from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, mentioned that they are open to reevaluating the case if new information emerges.
The investigation surrounding Vallow and her involvement in the crimes has been ongoing.
Alex Cox, Vallow’s brother, claimed self-defense when he shot and killed Charles Valois.
Police believe that Vallow had a motive for the murder, as she was the beneficiary of a $1 million life insurance policy.
Additionally, investigators discovered that Vallow had identified her brother as a “dark soul” in relation to the grand jury indictment.
This suggests that both Vallow and Cox conspired together in committing the crimes.
The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office acknowledges the importance of holding people accountable for their actions and providing a voice for the victims.
Vallow now faces life in prison for the murders of her children, 16-year-old Tylee and 7-year-old JJ, as well as the conspiracy to kill Tammy Daybell.
Whether the Arizona cases will be tried together or separately is yet to be determined and will ultimately be up to the court.
Justin Lum, an investigator closely following the case, obtained a copy of the indictment against Vallow, confirming the ongoing legal proceedings.
The Maricopa County publicly stands committed to pursuing justice in this high-profile case.
