Lori Vallow is in court Idaho on Friday following her February 20 arrest in Hawaii on child desertion charges. Vallow’s children Tylee Ryan, 17, and Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, have not been seen since September.
Law & Crime has a live video feed of Vallow’s court appearance, which you can watch here.
Vallow remains in custody on a $5 million bond, after she was extradited to Idaho on Thursday. Her attorneys have asked that her bail be reduced. When a judge asked where Vallow would be living if she were to be released from jail, her attorney requested that the address not be disclosed publicly due to the heavy media attention around her case.
Prosecutors at the trial have said they believe Vallow is a flight risk. She and her husband Chad Daybell fled Idaho shortly after police performed a wellness check at her Rexburg home in late November, when they first discovered the children missing. A prosecutor also said that Vallow continued to collect social security benefits in her children’s name after they were last seen.
“The defendant has completely and utterly refused” to aid in the investigation into her children’s disappearance, the prosecutor said.
