The mother of two long-missing children is due back in court on Friday.
As East Idaho News reports, Lori Vallow is scheduled to appear at the Madison County Courthouse in Idaho for a bond reduction hearing. Vallow is in custody on child desertion charges after refusing to cooperate with the investigation into the disappearances of her children. Her daughter Tylee Ryan, 17, and son Joshua “JJ” Vallow, have not been seen since September.
According to the report, Vallow will make a physical appearance in court at 2 p.m., and access to the courtroom will be otherwise limited amid the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. Vallow is being held on a $1 million bond, previously reduced from $5 million. Her attorney has asked for a further reduction amid reports that Vallow is having trouble finding a bail bond company willing to work with her.
East Idaho News reports that a judge has permitted the news outlet access to live-stream the court proceedings. Check back with CrimeOnline for continued coverage and to watch the hearing live.
