Vallow Daybell is already serving multiple life sentences in Idaho in connection with the murders of her two children, JJ Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 16, as well as her fifth husband’s former wife, Tammy Daybell, 49.
In the Arizona case, Vallow Daybell is charged with conspiring to kill Charles Vallow, who police say was gunned down by Vallow Daybell’s brother, Alex Cox, on July 11, 2019 in Chandler, Arizona. Cox died before any charges could be filed against him.
