Chad Daybell may testify against ‘cult mom’ wife Lori Daybell in court TODAY

The ‘doomsday’ husband and wife now share the same attorney

The husband of  an Idaho mother jailed on child desertion charges may testify against her in court on Friday.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Lori Vallow is due in court in Idaho Friday afternoon for a bond reduction hearing. Vallow’s children Tylee Ryan, 17, and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow have not been seen since September, and Vallow did not comply with a court order to produce them. A judge had already reduced her bond from $5 million to $1 million. According to local reports, Vallow has been unable to secure a bail bondsman, in part because she is considered a flight risk.

Friday’s hearing will take place inside the Madison County courthouse, but attendance will be strictly limited. Still, at least one witness is expected to be called to the stand, according to a recent social media update from East Idaho News reporter Nate Eaton.

ABC News reports that Vallow’s husband Chad Daybell may be called to testify against her on Friday. As East Idaho News reported earlier this week, Daybell parted ways with his previous legal counsel and is now being represented by his wife’s lawyer, Mark Means.

Daybell has not been charged in connection with the disappearance of Vallow’s children, but he and Vallow are both being investigated in connection to the sudden death of his wife Tammy Daybell, who died in their Idaho home just weeks before he married Vallow. Authorities initially determined that Tammy died of natural causes, but have since exhumed her body and re-opened the investigation. Her autopsy results are still pending, and neither Vallow or Daybell have been charged or formally named a suspect in Tammy’sdeath.

CrimeOnline will carry a livestream video of Vallow’s bail-reduction hearing, scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. MT (4 p.m. ET).
