News just broke that Lori Vallow has been found guilty on all counts in her trial, and all I can say is: Hurray!!
ICYMI, Lori Vallow was on trial for the murder of her two children back in 2019.
There’s a whole Netflix docuseries about the murders, Sins of Our Mother, and it is equal parts disturbing and amazing for true crime buffs.
Basically, Lori Vallow Daybell, and her husband, Chad Daybell, were both charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of her children, Joshua “J.J.” Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 16.
The remains of the poor kids were found on an Idaho property belonging to Chad Daybell.
In my mind, this trial was pretty much a no-brainer, slam dunk, but Lori was entitled to a trial jury of her peers.
So, the trial has been going on for the last several weeks.
In the end, there were 6 different counts that they jury could have rendered a not-guilty or guilty verdict:
- Conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree of Tylee Ryan and grand theft by deception
- Murder in the first degree of Tylee Ryan
- Conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree of Joshua Jaxon “JJ” Vallow and grand theft by deception
- Murder in the first degree of JJ Vallow
- Conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree of Tamara (Tammy) Daybell
- Grand theft (of Social Security benefits owed to her children and Social Security child care benefits)
Lori was found GUILTY on every single count.
Am I surprised? Not one little bit.
So, what’s next for Lori Vallow?
In Idaho, where the trial happened, a pre-sentencing report has to be filed before a sentencing hearing can take place.
It typically takes longer than 2 months for the report to be filed, but per the judge in the case, it will likely take 3 months to prepare the report in this complicated case.
A sentencing hearing date is to be determined, after the time the pre-sentencing report is filed.
Those poor babies did not deserve this, and our hearts go out to the remaining family left reeling from this whole disaster.
