BREAKING: ‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow in court over her children’s charred remains

Update: 12: 30 p.m. ET

Lori Vallow has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy charges in connection to the deaths of her two children.

As KIDK reports, Vallow pleaded not guilty two felony counts of conspiracy to alter or destroy evidence in connection. Her two children, 16-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow, were found dead in her husband Daybell’s backyard in June.

The not guilty plea means that Vallow’s case will go to trial. According to the report, the trial is set to begin in April 2021.

Original story:

Lori Vallow will appear in court in Idaho on Thursday for her arraignment on charges connected to the disappearance and deaths of her two children.

In June, investigators found the remains of Tylee Ryan, 16, and her 7-year-old brother Joshua “JJ” Vallow buried in the yard of Vallow’s husband Chad Daybell.

Vallow is expected to enter her plea to two counts of conspiracy to conceal, destroy, or alter evidence in the case. Daybell earlier pleaded not guilty to those and two additional charges of concealing evidence.

Neither Daybell or Vallow have been charged with murder.

According to KTVB, Vallow will have three options at her arraignment Thursday: She can plead guilty, not guilty, or decline to submit a plea on her own behalf by “standing silent,” in which case a judge would enter a not guilty plea.

KTVB is hosting a live-stream of the hearing set to begin at 10 a.m. MT, noon ET. Watch the arraignment here:
